Latest Star Wars Coins from NZ Mint

New Zealand Mint has released legal tender (in Niue) Star Wars coins a couple of times in the past (in 2011 and 2012). For 2016, they are issuing two collections: Star Wars Classic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Classic Collection “highlights many of the great characters associated with this cultural phenomenon” and includes coins in a couple of different weights of silver and gold. The Force Awakens Collection feature coloured images of Rey, Phasma, and Kylo. The NZ Mint website suggests that more coin releases will be coming in the future.
