And the winner of the Eve Boonta ™ Classic
As introduced by New Zealand Mint,
"These 2021 coins show Anakin piloting his Podracer to success in the Eve Boonta ™ Classic, where beings from all over the galaxy compete in a death-defying competition on Tatooine.
Built in secret by the young slave, his shiny blue and silver Podracer was boasted to be the fastest ever to compete. It wasn’t idle puffery by its creator — when thrown into the cutthroat racing competition, this Podracer’s performance gave Anakin the edge he needed to win the race and his freedom.
The race is considered to be among the most memorable action set pieces in the entire Skywalker saga. It’s not difficult to see why. The breathtaking nine-minute sequence is very fast and the Podracers are awesome. Two engines tethered to a cockpit, they’re vehicles built for speed and, to put it simply, look super cool."
As a legal tender offering of Niue, the obverse displays the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. Inscriptions encircling the rim include, "ELIZABETH II . NIUE TWO Dollars . 2021."
The reverse features a very detailed, closeup vantage of young Anakin Skywalker ™ piloting his podracer. Inscriptions include "1 oz 999 Fine Silver . © ™ Lucas Film Ltd." This is really a great depiction of the action of the podrace scene from the movie, STAR WARS: Episode I – The Phantom Menace™ .
