The style of artwork known as “Chibi” features adorable little characters with large heads, large eyes and small bodies. Slang for a small or diminutive person, It first appeared in Japan and found its way into anime and manga comics. It has since spread to America where it’s among the most popular art forms today. And now it has even touched mainstream comic books with this adorable shaped coin that depicts everyone’s favorite Wookiee™ from the Star Wars™ films — the mighty Chewbacca™ — in a whole new way.
Chewbacca Imagined as a Chibi Character
The second release in the Star Wars Chibi Coin series from the New Zealand Mint, this coin is $2 legal-tender in Niue, a small island nation in the South Pacific Ocean. It was struck in a full Troy ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver and is officially authorized by Lucasfilm Ltd.
