Our Star Wars Classic coin collection now features six classic characters (with more to follow) but, due to high demand for some of the most beloved character coins, there is now very little stock and no more available.
One of nature's most impressive wonders is displayed each year, when populations of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter.
"Humpbacks arguably make the longest documented migration of any mammal," says marine mammal research biologist John Calambokidis, who has studied the whales since 1986. NZ Mint is therefore thrilled to release this magnificent Humpback whale coin as part of their Great Migrations coin collection.
In conjunction with the launch of the movie Star Wars: Rogue One we have created two, limited edition, collectible coins. Set against the iconic Star Wars tapestry of the struggle between the rebellion against the Empire, the film revolves around a rogue band of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans and bring new hope to the galaxy.
NZ Mint is thrilled to release a London city coin, the second coin in our Great Cities coin collection. The collection will feature some of the world’s most significant cities.
This stunning second release is a classic engraved coin, with a proof quality background. It features an impressive contemporary-style design of Big Ben in front of other iconic buildings from the London skyline.
The Warriors of History – Romans 1 oz Silver Coin is the fifth release in this exciting collection celebrating the stories of some of the most legendary warriors in history.
Human history is filled with stories of legendary warrior people, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skilful use of weapons and their superior battle tactics. The soldiers of the Roman army were well-equipped and highly trained, and operated in strict formation on the battlefield. Their basic equipment consisted of a Cassis (helmet), Lorica Segmentata (armour), Gladius (sword), Pilum (spear), Scutum (shield). They regularly practised hand-to-hand combat with equipment that was deliberately heavier than that used in battle.
