Go Eye-To-Eye with a Stormtrooper
Usually the good guys are dressed in white, right? That’s not always the case in the Star Wars™ cinematic universe where the Empire’s army of stormtroopers are clad head-to-toe in white battle armor. These faceless, nameless minions of the empire are basically disposable bad guys as they are shot, stabbed, melted, vaporized, clubbed and done away with in all sorts of ways that are often as comical as they are melodramatic.
This seemingly endless supply of cannon fodder has not been without its line-up of A-list actors, musicians and celebrities. That list includes Simon Pegg, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Edgar Wright, Kevin Smith, Gary Barlow, Ed Sheeran and even Prince William and Prince Harry – whose Stormtroopers scene was cut from 2017’s The Last Jedi.
Designed to look like stylized skulls reminiscent of Nazi SS skull insignias, the battle helmets worn by Stormtroopers as envisioned by Star Wars creator George Lucas were to look both terrifying, and “super cool.” Now you can get a close-up view of one of these menacing visages thanks to this legal-tender coin made in the shape of a stormtrooper helmet.
Struck in two full ounces of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, this coin is the second release in the New Zealand Mint’s series of sculpted Star Wars Helmet Coins. Each 2020 Niue Two-Ounce Silver Stormtrooper Helmet Coin available in this offer will come in gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, as fresh and crisp as the day it left the mint.
