2020 Niue Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet 2oz Silver UHR
The South Pacific island nation of Niue is very excited to introduce this incredible, 2020 Niue Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet 2oz Silver UHR coin! Produced by New Zealand Mint as the third release of Niue's Limited Edition Star Wars themed, Ultra High Relief series featuring the iconic helmets of key Star Wars characters.
Boba Fett – Mercenary & Bounty Hunter
As the story has often been recounted, Boba Fett™ is the sole non-altered human clone of Jango Fett, mercenary and bounty hunter. It was Jango's desire to raise Boba as his child and fully train him. This he did until his assassination by the swift sword of the Jedi Master, Mace Windu. Boba witnessed the killing of his father, which propelled him on a course to develop into a greatly feared bounty hunter himself. Above all else, Boba despised Jedi Order!
This helmet bears the deep marks of some very close calls for Boba Fett, including a blaster scorch mark and the infamous deep ding on the upper left. Boba’s scarred Mandalorian style helmet, as depicted in Star Wars ™, inspired the design of this third release of the new ultra high relief, 3D helmet-shaped series: Star Wars Helmets.
Ultra High Relief
The ultra high relief minting of these coins has produced a highly-detailed coin that reveals nuances of the mask’s shape contours that would never be able to be displayed on a standard bullion coin, or even a basic high-relief offering.
As a legal tender offering by Niue, the obverse (concave side) displays the Ian Rank-Broadley distinctive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions encircling the effigy include, "ELIZABETH II . NIUE . FIVE DOLLARS . 2020.quot; Under this is included, " 2oz 999 Fine Silver © ™Lucasfilm Ltd." The reverse features the ultra high relief details of Boba Fett’s helmet on a remarkably fine luster finish.
Each coin is presented in a fine black STAR WARS ™ branded display case, angled to show the coin’s 3D shape. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity and an illustrated shipper.
