After its release in 1977, Star Wars captured the head and minds of a generation around the world.
Jedi Master Yoda is the third character to feature in the Star Wars Classic coin collection. In the days of the Old Republic, Jedi Master Yoda was the most wise and powerful of all Jedi.
Diminutive and unassuming, Yoda had no equals in his keen insight into the Force, or in his agile skill with a lightsaber. For over 800 years, Yoda instructed young Jedi and instilled them a profound sense of discipline, strength, and unity.
The Jedi Order nobly served the Galactic Republic and maintained peace and order for over a thousand generations before the dark side re-emerged and plunged a helpless galaxy into the hands of the evil Sith. During these dark times, Yoda became the last of the Jedi and the only hope in instructing young Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force.
Through his last apprentice, Yoda helped Luke to fulfil his destiny – a destiny that would finally restore peace to the galaxy and honor the legend of the Jedi.
This stunning engraved 1oz Silver Coin features Yoda in a scene, training Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force, as seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
The Yoda 1oz Silver Coin comes presented in a high-quality Star Wars branded and stylized inner coin case and themed outer coin packaging. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 10,000 of the 2016 Star Wars Yoda 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
