Star Wars Coin Sets

Damn! Is the global economy THAT bad!?!

New Zealand is hoping the Force can help their bottom line:

New Zealand Mint is proud to launch one of cinema’s most enduring and beloved franchises, Star Wars, as a legal tender coin set. These coin series will be hugely popular for both Star Wars devotees and coin-collectors alike. This first series is a limited mintage and are quite simply out of this Universe. Don’t deny the Force within you, and get your set today.

At a face value of $2, they're going to sell for much more. You can spend about $400 for a set!

On a tight budget? No worries, you can buy them individually too. Each of the 40 character coins will be going for near $20. So pick a favorite!

    I'm from NZ too, and its not us changing our coins - I think its Niue? Or one of the other small Pacific Islands.

    they are just being made by the NZ mint, but are not legal currency there, only in Niue are they legal currency.

    Shouldn't they be making LOTR coins instead? I mean after all, Peter Jackson did make the country a name again.
