NZ Mint: A Masterful Manipulator Appears on New Star Wars Classic Coins

For the thirteenth release in New Zealand Mint’s Star Wars Classic collection they have chosen the tyrannical Emperor Palpatine. Another great choice! A masterful and patient manipulator, he carefully played countless people. His intelligence coupled with his desire for power makes him one of the most formidable villains you’ll encounter in fiction. Click through for more details!


Available in 1 oz Silver, ¼ oz & 1 oz Gold Coins

He has been likened to many tyrants before him but, love him or hate him, you can’t dispute Palpatine’s commitment and follow through. From relative anonymity he rose to become a chancellor who was granted emergency powers, disbanded a senate and built a secret military unlike any other. He ended the republic in favour of his own new order: one where he had unlimited power. No wonder he is such a fan favourite!

Each Emperor Palpatine coin, be it gold or silver, is delivered in high-quality Star Wars branded packaging – adding extra value to this must-have purchase.

BUT there is a limited quantity for each coin – indeed, only 500 of the 1 oz gold coins will be made! So, don’t delay, get this masterful manipulator in your collection today!
