Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999

The new Somalia Leopard 2024 of the popular African Wildlife Series was struck from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver. The African Wildlife Series from Somalia is released annually with a changing leopard motive and is extremely popular among collectors and investors worldwide. The motive features a mother leopard and her cub on a rock outcrop. The inscriptions “AFRICAN WILDLIFE”, “LEOPARD” and “1 oz Ag 999.9” surround the design. The reverse shows the national coat of arms of the Republic of Somalia, which depicts the Somalia flag and two leopards. The denomination and year of issue are also included in the design.

The Leopard (Panthera pardus) is a loner common in Africa and Asia, and belongs to the most graceful and powerful big cats on earth along with lion, tiger and jaguar. It is an excellent climber and, unlike most other big cats, can also climb down head first. Its excellent climbing ability also benefits the leopard in securing its prey – it often drags hunted animals up into trees several meters high, where lions and hyenas can no longer reach them. The limited silver bullion coin is delivered in a protective coin capsule.

The 2024 Krugerrand continues this legendary tradition in a new metal. Much like its gold sibling, the Silver Krugerrand offers investors a great way to own low-premium bullion.

Those mints include but are not limited to Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike the U.S. Mint, these Chinese Mints do not incorporate mint marks to distinguish the difference between each mint.

The figures also represent fortitude and freedom, virtues that underpin the national identities of both the UK and the US.

89mm
Weight (grams):
311
Fineness:
999

Introduced in 1997, the British Silver Britannia was issued for more than 20 years with just one monarch featuring on the obverse of the coins. With the passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, the Royal Mint issued 2023 Britannias with both Her Late Majesty on the obverse and, later, with King Charles III on the obverse. The 2024 series is the first to boast only coins with the king on the obverse.

The history of the British Silver Britannia is a unique one among major bullion collections. While the gold coins debuted in 1987, the Silver Britannia didn’t debut until a decade later in 1997. From 1997 to 2010, the Royal Mint used alternating designs of Britannia on the reverse.

During that same period, three different portraits of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II featured on the obverse. The shortest-lived was Raphael Maklouf’s third-generation bust of the Queen used only in 1997. From 1998 to 2015, Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of the Queen featured and from 2016 to 2023, Jody Clark’s bust of the Queen was used.

Tesla was truly a remarkable person that devoted his life to discovery while additionally relishing the role of showman. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would even demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab. He was also noted for his showmanship at public lectures.

Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for the Edison Machine Works in New York City a short time before he struck out on his own.

In 1887, Tesla met two investors who agreed to back the formation of the Tesla Electric Company. He set up a laboratory in Manhattan, where he developed the alternating current induction motor, which solved a number of technical problems that had bedeviled other designs. When Tesla demonstrated his device at an engineering meeting, the Westinghouse Company made arrangements to license the technology, providing an upfront payment and royalties on each horsepower generated.

“Panta Rhei” – Everything flows and things come and go. When it comes to value, precious metals have always held a crucial position in the world of finance. Nowadays, a safe haven at the very least, a financial norm in the past. Silver currently holds an especially important position in the financial world and we believe it will continue to do so for a long time.

Now and forever.

Heraclitus recognized the fundamental changing of objects with the flow of time (i.e., impermanence) and the philosophical issue of becoming.

He is credited with the phrase πάντα ῥεῖ (panta rhei) “everything flows.”This famous aphorism used to characterize Heraclitus’ thought comes from Simplicius, a neoplatonist, and from Plato’s Cratylus. The word rhei (as in rheology) is the Greek word for “to stream”, and is etymologically related to Rhea according to Plato’s Cratylus. Compare with the Latin adages Omnia mutantur and Tempora mutantur (8 AD) and the Buddhist and Hindu concepts of anicca.

The reverse shows two halves of a buffalo head. Placing two of these coins next to each other gives a full close-up portrait of a buffalo. When several of these coins are placed next to each other, an entire buffalo herd appears. In the center, the denomination “FIVE RAND”, the weight “1OZ” and the fineness “Ag 999” are shown.

The Cape or African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a typical grazer. It lives in herds of a few dozen to hundreds of animals and prefers swampy areas and shaded grasslands near water. Particularly characteristic for the buffalo are its sweeping, curved horns, which can reach a span of up to 1.50 meters. As a “Big Five” member, the buffalo was formerly hunted on big-game hunts and severely decimated, so that the species almost became extinct – in the meantime, however, the populations have recovered. The limited Big Five II Buffalo silver coin in uncirculated quality is delivered in an illustrated blistercard of the South African Mint.

Unlike the other sovereign coins in its class, however, the Krugerrand offers multi-generational demand and recognition. Gold investors have turned to the Krugerrand for over 50 years; now they can own this trusted coin in silver too.

The 2023 1 oz Silver Krugerrand also features its face value as part of the obverse design. The original reverse design of a leaping springbok antelope is also sharper and more defined thanks to the latest computer technology and laser etching techniques. The obverse of this prestigious 2023 silver coin features the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is perhaps the most famous of the 7 Wonders of the World, and the only one to remain intact to this day. It is located just outside of modern day Cairo, and was built over 4,500 years ago.

The pyramid is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids, and was built to be the tomb of pharaoh Khufu in the early 26th century BC. It is estimated that the pyramid took around 27 years to complete and held the title of largest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. The construction technique used to build the pyramid has been a topic of debate for centuries, but it is widely believed that stone was gathered in quarries surrounding the site and transported by boat along the Nile to the site of construction. Once complete, the structure was made up of around 2.3 million blocks and contained around 5.5 million tonnes of limestone and 8,000 tonnes of granite.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has been a marvel for the human race for thousands of years, fascinating for its place in Egyptian history, construction and architectural feat, and its ability to survive through the centuries.

Instead, these mints are known for having minor differences in the design of the coin such as font size, bamboo length and designs of the temple in certain year’s mintages.

Weight (grams):

Fineness:
999

Silver bullion bars have long been a sound choice for precious metals investors. There are primarily two advantages recognized by those investing in bullion bars. Due to lower production costs, they generally have a lower premium as compared to the same troy oz of silver and gold coins. This, of course, results in less expensive upfront investment costs. Perhaps equally important to the precious metals investment stacker is the bar’s relative ease of stacking for storage. The stacks generally take less room to store than the same weight of bullion coins.

Manufacturer: Royal Australian Mint
Dimensions: 40.6 mm
Weight (grams): 31.103

The Sydney Opera House has been a source of wonder since it was a sketch on a page.

Then, from a small coastal town in Denmark came a vision from architect Jorn Utzon that would forever change the face of Sydney.

Now a symbol of modern Australia, the Sydney Opera House has more than repaid the conviction of Utzon and Australian architect Peter Hall, who transformed these dreams into the creative masterpiece that stands today. When the building finally opened its doors in October 1973, a new era of creativity and connection began.

Five decades later, the Opera House is everyone’s house. It is the nation’s premier tourist destination, one of the world’s busiest performing arts centres and a community meeting place that belongs to all Australians. To visit Bennelong Point is to encounter a story of contemporary experience that continues to renew itself each day.

Named in honour of naturalist Johann Forster, who travelled with Captain James Cook on his second voyage of discovery (1772 – 1775), the Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the largest of all penguins, growing to around a metre tall. Emperors are endemic to Antarctica, including the Australian Antarctic Territory.

In addition to correctly postulating the order of the known planets from the sun and estimating their orbital periods relatively accurately, Copernicus argued that Earth turned daily on its axis and that gradual shifts of this axis accounted for the changing seasons.

Tesla was truly a remarkable person that devoted his life to discovery while additionally relishing the role of showman. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would even demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab. He was also noted for his showmanship at public lectures.

Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for the Edison Machine Works in New York City a short time before he struck out on his own.

In 1887, Tesla met two investors who agreed to back the formation of the Tesla Electric Company. He set up a laboratory in Manhattan, where he developed the alternating current induction motor, which solved a number of technical problems that had bedeviled other designs. When Tesla demonstrated his device at an engineering meeting, the Westinghouse Company made arrangements to license the technology, providing an upfront payment and royalties on each horsepower generated.

Immersed in an orderly, feminine, almost lunar-like universe, she harmoniously envelops the goddess, magnificently enthroned at the center of the composition, around which numerous lotus flowers take shape, a symbol of resilience, a plant that manages to survive even in adversity conditions flourish that remind us that nothing is lost in life and that even in times of trouble, the capacity for rebirth and renewal must prevail.

Durga carries a variety of weapons and other items that she uses in her fight against evil. Each has a symbolic meaning important to Hinduism; these are the most significant:

Consuming the young leaves of the beech tree and its fruits, one fell into a state of intoxication, which allowed one to calm down, get rid of unnecessary thoughts, which in turn was supposed to facilitate contact with the deity. In the shade of the tree’s sizable crown, people spent time talking to the god, which is why statues were erected under the beech tree, burial shrines were built, and barrows were spread.

On September 17, 1806, when The Netherlands was under the rule of King Louis Napoleon, he decided that the striking and distribution of coins should be by a single national body. This was in contrast to the Middle Ages custom of large trading cities having their own mint and coins, which resulted in several coins circulating within the country and many levels of controlling bureaucracy.

Its market premium is comparable to the Silver Maple Leaf, Britannia, Kangaroo, and Philharmonic. Unlike the other sovereign coins in its class, however, the Krugerrand offers multi-generational demand and recognition. Gold investors have turned to the Krugerrand for over 50 years; now they can own this trusted coin in silver too.

Fineness:

The French Indo-China silver Piastre is one of the many successors of the Spanish “piece of Eight” large size silver coins that had circulated in many parts of Asia since the seventeenth century. Arising from a need by many nations to develop commerce and trade with the Orient, the so-called Trade Dollars became almost ‘calling cards’ for western nations as trade with the China and the Orient exploded following the First and Second Opium Wars. As other European powers began their push into Asia, France had for the most part gone unchallenged with the exception being Vietnam who themselves had hopes of achieving greater amounts of territory. By 1885, the French introduced a new currency based on the silver piastre de commerce in order to increase monetary stability The obverse of the coins depicted a distinctive seated Liberty and headdress similar to that worn by the iconic Statue of Liberty, a gift to the American people from France in 1876 on the Centenary Anniversary of US Independence. The reverse side included a simple wreath with the inscription INDO-CHINE FRANCAISE – PIASTRE DE COMMERCE – A TITRE 0,900. POIDS 27 GR. denoting the coin’s original weight and fineness.

Inscribed on the band of the crown is “IN YOUR MAJESTY RIDE OUT VICTORIOUSLY”. Behind the lion is a reflective regal floral-like pattern that accentuates the beauty of this design. At the very bottom of the obverse are the specifications of the coin of “ONE TROY OUNCE” and the exceptional purity of “.9999 FINE SILVER”.

The reverse features a very similar design to that of past Roaring Lion Silver Coins. Like past years, the 2020 Roaring Lions is backed by Niue.

The Aztec Calendar 1oz CUAUHTEMOC Silver Bullion Bar

Fineness:
999

The Aztec calendar is the calendar system that was used by the Aztecs as well as other Pre-Columbian peoples of central Mexico. It is one of the Mesoamerican calendars, sharing the basic structure of calendars from throughout ancient Mesoamerica.

The calendar consisted of a 365-day calendar cycle called xiuhpohualli (year count) and a 260-day ritual cycle called tonalpohualli (day count). These two cycles together formed a 52-year “century,” sometimes called the “calendar round”. The xiuhpohualli is considered to be the agricultural calendar, since it is based on the sun, and the tonalpohualli is considered to be the sacred calendar.

The calendric year may have begun at some point in the distant past with the first appearance of the Pleiades (Tianquiztli) asterism in the east immediately before the dawn light. But due to the precession of the Earth’s axis, it fell out of favor to a more constant reference point such as a solstice or equinox. Early Spanish chroniclers recorded it being celebrated in proximity with the Spring equinox.

In ancient cultures, stories about heroes and monsters were an important part of everyday life. They helped people explain objects in the sky, make sense of weather events, or answer life’s big questions. Born around the fire and evolved through word of mouth, tales of these creatures and their supernatural powers were told and retold millions of times from person to person, from trade port to trade port, and from generation to generation – manifesting into a hundred different versions around the world.

The Taj Mahal is known as the Crown of the Palaces and is a white-marble mausoleum. It was constructed along the Yamuna river near the city of Agra in India. Commissioned in 1632, the building serves as the tomb of the favorite wife of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. This fifth dragon in the series is known as the Indian and likely depicts Pakhangba, the supreme God of the Meetei tradition.

It became necessary to produce a special dollar for trading in the British Colony when the price of Silver rose rapidly in value between 1875 and 1895. The Silver price disturbed trading and resulted in a very serious shortage of minted dollars. To overcome the threat of a currency famine, The Royal Prerogative of the English sovereign gave approval in 1894 for the minting of a special British Dollar for general use in Far Eastern Trade.

The release of these Trade Dollars marked a significant change in Japan during which time the restoration of Imperial Authority was vested in Emperor Mutshuhito, who reigned from 1868 to 1914. His reign is known as the Meiji Era, which witnessed the introduction of rapid industrialization and manufacturing that transformed Japan into one of the world’s largest and most advanced economies.

The 2020 Silver 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallion BU depicts an incredibly detailed mountain scene, featuring Chiwoo Cheonwang in full battle armor protecting his shoulders and chest. His helmet has two sharp horns attached, which reference further mythological aspects associated with Chiwoo. His massive sword fills his right hand, while his large shield protects at his left. His large cloak flows behind him as he stands firm upon the rugged terrain. Chiwoo Cheonwang’s full attention remains fixed upon the chained gates cut into the mountainside, that are recounted to be the sealed hell gate. As with previous releases, only his name is inscribed at the mid-point of the right rim. This is truly a finely executed design that captures with imaginative skill the tenseness of the moment Chiwoo Cheonwang faces!

 

The 2020 Phoenix South Korean 1oz Silver Bullion Medal

Fineness:

The mythical Phoenix rises again — this time as part of an epic new silver bullion series from South Korea, where the bird has been a harbinger of nobility and good fortune since ancient times. Flush with the monumental success and collector demand of its Chiwoo Cheonwang silver bullion series, South Korea was spurred to embark on another series. And this is it!

Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver by KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea, this impressive medal captures the Korean Phoenix like never before. Known as a the “Bong-Hwang” in South Korea, the bird has been the symbol of Korean nobility since the late 1300s when “The Phoenix Throne” was used to describe the rulers of the Joseon Dynasty. The phoenix still maintains a huge presence in South Korean culture and has even been integrated into the design of the nation’s presidential seal.

The phoenix takes center stage on this piece where it is depicted majestically hovering in the sky, wings spread wide almost in an embrace while clutching a symbolic orb of knowledge in its beak. The reverse design superbly depicts a pair of Phoenix facing each other and the South Korean flag. The designs are simply fantastic. Plus, each piece available in this offer comes in original Gem Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, meaning that they are products of a superb strike that places your them firmly among the elite of the run. Each also features a unique security feature in the form of a lenticular design struck into the silver itself. Located on the obverse, this lenticular feature displays either “Ag” or “999” depending on the viewing angle

Manufacturer: Komsco
Dimensions:

Fineness:

Mintage: 22,000

The Fourth release in the Zi:Sin Series comes from KOMSCO with the design of Rattus. The collection features images of the 12 Guardians, with each of the guardians representing leading soldiers in the armies of God. In Korean culture, these individuals represent protectors who serve as the leading edge for the armies of good when facing off with evil in the world.

ZI:SIN Rattus is the Queen of the underground cave at the Chiwoo Empire and has the ability to forsee danger. Dressed in a celestial robe with a dagger on her waist, Rattus waits at the top of the cave to enjoy the darkness and brightness of the world under the full moon. It is here that she is able to foresee that a great war is coming, and alerts Chiwoo Cheonwang.

For the 2020 release, the obverse design features a new Gwi-myeon-wa, known as “Nok-yoo-gi-myeon-wa”. Traditionally, Koreans built Gwi-myeon-wa and hung them on both ends of their roofs to scare off evil spirits.

This perspective-based action scene is unequaled in any recent martial arts themed bullion coin offerings of which we are aware. Every aspect of this design is spot-on regarding the power of the deep focus involved in Taekwondo. The fist-punch displayed did not originate in the passionate emotional response of the combatant depicted. One glance at his expression demonstrates the quiet spirit out of which the punch was being delivered. This is a remarkable step forward in this new series, and one we hope to see expanded on in the years to come!

The obverse is consistent with the series, presenting a beautiful and active scene, featuring a Yin Yang symbol on the left center of the design. The darkness of the Yin is accented by slightly-angled fine, horizontal lines against the frosted background. The lightness of the Yang is from the unfrosted silver. A circle-inset fills the head of the Yang with the security feature of a latent image of the medallion’s fineness of “999” hidden within the fine vertical lines. The active part of the design is produced by swirls of heavier lines that appear to feed into the Yin from the top, and the Yang from the bottom. The overall design is very clean and attractive, with a nicely-textured frosted background. Inscriptions at the lower right include “2020” in a smaller type, with “KOREA” in a larger type stacked below.

The reverse is where the real action is! A young taekwondo fighter demonstrates a perfect upward, forward punch, originating from the center of his focused energy, ready to move in and finish the contest. Inscriptions include “TAEKWONDO . 1oz FINE SILVER 999.”

Mintage: 25,000

Asian cultures have a love of gambling that rivals anywhere else on Earth, so what better subject for a coin from the region that luck itself? The design of this one-ounce fine silver bullion coin is a composition of many of the elements associated with the concept of luck around the world. A slot machine is the main focus, but it, and the surrounding space, is replete with such iconic imagery as horseshoes, and four-leaf clovers. We’re not going to say this was something designed primarily for artistic style – this one is about the meaning more than anything else. The obverse of this Niue Island issue is a standard one, depicting Queen Elizabeth II for its main element.

Each of the coins in the 25,000 mintage comes with a small certificate of authenticity that has a serialised number on it. Nothing strange about that, of course, but there’s something a bit special about this one. On 28 March 2020, at 10am Korean time, there will be a live YouTube event in which one serial number of that 25,000 will be drawn to win a prize.

The 2020 Sumatran Tiger one-ounce silver bullion coin is the first release in a new Australia Zoo coin series and features a Sumatran tiger. He belongs to the critically endangered species – the number of tigers living in the wild is estimated at fewer than 400 worldwide. The rare species is the smallest living subspecies of the tiger and has its habitat exclusively on the island of Sumatra (Indonesia). Beside his smaller body size, the Sumatran tiger also differs from other tigers by his very strong fur base colour.

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the “Fifth Portrait” worldwide but “Sixth Portrait” in Australia, where the Queen’s portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth). The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen’s Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937. Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is “uncouped” (includes the Queen’s shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist’s initials JC (for Jody Clark). Running continuously around the rim is the monarch’s legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

There’s something special about wild horses running free, but the free-roaming mustangs of America’s West aren’t the world’s only wild horses.

Brumby was forced to turn loose the horses he had bred and raised in New South Wales after being transferred to Tasmania in 1804. Today, these feral creatures descended from Brumby’s original stock have come to symbolize Australia’s independent nature and ability to thrive in a hostile environment.

2020 Black Flag The Royal Fortune 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Perth Mint
Dimensions: 40.6 mm
Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

The Royal Fortune was captained by the legendary Pirate Black Bart,  This is the second subject of a new series of silver and gold bullion coins from the Perth Mint, Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, pirates roamed the seven seas, with each ship displaying a unique “black flag” to announce its arrival and make clear mercy would be given only to those who surrendered.

Born in Pembrokeshire. In 1718, when he was second mate on the Princess, his ship was captured by the Welsh pirate, Howel Davis, and he was forced to serve under his captor. When Davis was killed, Roberts, who in six weeks had shown great courage and resourcefulness, was elected captain. He accepted, saying that since he had dipped his hands in muddy water it was better to be commander than a common man. Notoriety came speedily. He sailed into a fleet of forty-two Portuguese ships, ascertained which was the richest, boarded, and sailed off with her. Soon he struck terror everywhere. When he entered a harbour in Newfoundland, their crews abandoned the twenty-two ships there. After successes, the pirates went ashore at places like Surinam and Sierra Leone, indulging wild debauchery until their resources were exhausted. Not that success was unbroken; once at least they were long in extremities for want of provisions and water. One of their finest captures was a frigate built ship of the Royal African Company. Roberts renamed her the Royal Fortune. Captain Chaloner Ogle, R.N., managed to bring her to battle off Cape Lopez.

Roberts was killed (10 February 1722), and his body, in all its pirate finery, thrown overboard, as he had previously requested. His crew then surrendered. Bold as pirate captains were, Roberts’s calculated daring was exceptional. In a drink-sodden and blood-stained community he was comparatively temperate and humane.

Roberts’ own prophetic words; “I have dipped my hands in muddy water and if a pirate I must be, ’tis better being a commander than a common man.”

The reef gutted the ship and only 75 of the crew survived, along with a small quantity of provisions and a single boat.
The under steersman, Abraham Leeman, took the boat and six crew on an astonishing and gruelling journey to Batavia and reported the wreck. Several attempts were made to rescue the survivors, but they were never located. The wreck of the Vergulde Draeck was discovered in 1963 and was excavated in 1972. Some 19,000 coins were recovered, mainly Spanish reals and some Japanese silver coins. The mystery of what became of the survivors of the Vergulde Draeck has never been answered.

Icons are representations of the Heavenly. They are expressions of Orthodox Faith, teaching, and worship. The Greek word for “Icon” is, “Αγιογραφία,” which can be separated into two words:

  • Άγιο, meaning Holy or not of this world (Heavenly)
  • Γράφω, meaning to write

Therefore, Icons are not drawings or creations of imagination. Theyare in fact writings of things not of this world. Icons can represent our Lord Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the Saints. They can also represent the Holy Trinity, Angels, the Heavenly hosts, and even events. Orthodox icons, unlike Western pictures, change the perspective and form of the image so that it is not naturalistic. This is done so that we can look beyond appearances of the world, and instead look to the spiritual truth of the holy person or event. Icons can only be created with the blessing of the Church, as they are writings of Truth.

Hawksbill turtles are found throughout the tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Named for their narrow, pointed beak, they are also recognizable by a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their exquisitely colored and patterned shells. This species typically avoids deep waters, preferring coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores.

Beautiful creatures, they make incredible migrations in order to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that often serve as nesting grounds. Hawksbill turtles come to New Zealand every year from Fiji. Although they’ve been sighted as far south as Cook Strait, they are mostly seen in the upper North Island of New Zealand in the clear, shallow waters of the island shelve.

Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are a critically endangered species due mostly to human impact. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and their stunning shells that are highly valuable in some marketplaces.

For years, fans of Star Wars™ labored under the delusion that Boba Fett had died after being inadvertently knocked into the jaws of the Sarlacc by a blinded Han Solo in 1983’s Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi. But according to none other than George Lucas himself, the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy did not die. Instead, his armor protected him from the creature’s digestive system, and he was able to escape after blasting a hole in the monster’s side.

Since then, Boba Fett has sought his revenge through novels, video games and comic books that are considered official cannon of the Star Wars Universe. And now, Boba Fett gets his due on the New Zealand Mint’s latest release in its Star Wars bullion coin series that shows an image of the infamous mercenary armed to the teeth and ready for action. It’s a dynamic, action-packed image struck in a full ounce of highly-pure 99.9% fine silver. In addition, the coin is officially licensed by Lucasfilm and Disney, so you know it lives up to the high standards Star Wars fans have come to expect.

Of course, Boba Fett’s similarity to a new Star Wars character has led to some confusion. Thanks to the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian, some folks have been mixing them up. The difference, though slight, is significant. You see, Boba Fett is actually a clone of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett, who raised him as his son. Boba was taught the ways of the Mandalorians and wears the same armor, but he was not raised in Mandalorian culture and has no place that he can truly call home.
