Niue 5 dollars 2019 Star Wars - 6) Millenium Falcon™ - Ultra High Relief 2 Oz. silver coin
The CorellianTM freighter, the Millennium FalconTM, is shown in stunning detail on this Ultra High Relief 2oz fine silver coin.
Packaged in a Star Wars themed outer box, the coin is angled perfectly for display inside a large Star Wars coin case. The Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the case.
The one-of-a-kind Ultra High Relief effect is achieved by using cutting edge minting techniques which allow the image to rise much higher than the face of the coin. It almost seems like the ship is flying right out of the coin. And not only does the process add more depth to the coin’s design, but it also adds a deeper, brighter lustre, ensuring every millimetre of the intricate design shines through.

Despite her humble origins and shabby exterior, the Millennium FalconTM has played a role in some of the greatest victories of the Rebel AllianceTM and the New RepublicTM. The Falcon looks like a worn-out junker, but beneath her hull she’s full of surprises. A succession of owners, including Lando CalrissianTM and Han SoloTM, have made special modifications that boosted the freighter’s speed, shielding and firepower to impressive – and downright illegal – levels.
The price of such tinkering? The Falcon can be unpredictable, with her hyperdrive particularly balky. Despite her flaws, she’s beloved by her owners – Han Solo and ChewbaccaTM spent years searching the galaxy for the ship they once called home, rejoicing when they finally reclaimed her.
