The next in the STAR WARS bullion series by the New Zealand Mint features an armed Stormtrooper, ready for battle!
Be sure to grab this highly collectible coin immortalized in .999 fine Silver. Star Wars mint coins are a great gift for a young numismatist or Star Wars fan of any age.
First introduced in the original Star Wars film (1977), the stormtrooper is a fictional soldier of the Galactic Empire, led by Emperor Palpatine, and Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin, his commanders. The stormtroopers are able to be ready for battle quickly, and act as an army of the Empire, by policing areas and responding to civil unrest. The stormtrooper is distinctly characterized by its white armor, which encapsulates the body to protect them in battle. In The Force Awakens (2015), the stormtroopers are upgraded and serve the First Order, led by Supreme Leader Snoke, along with Kylo Ren, General Hux, and Captain Phasma, his new commanders.
