Mankind has been using some kind of money for a long time, coins have been in our pockets, cradles or wallets for thousands of years. Already in the first copies there was some pattern, usually some reference to the current ruler of the given country. Nowadays, collecting coins has become an expensive hobby from which the mints can make a huge profit: all kinds of patterned coins are made – whether at home or abroad – that have a face value, so they can be used as a real means of payment.

The Mint of New Zealand has taken a turn in the design of the special coins, and instead of / in addition to casting classic, historical events into metal, they have also started showing film characters and cinema characters. In recent years, works have been featured on Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Matrix and Batman, among others.

The coins are not necessarily circular: perhaps the most successful piece was the silver Millennium Falcon, which ran out of stock in three thousand pieces in a month.

Among the most expensive pieces are gold coins: the versions decorated with Jababa and the Death Star cost 688 thousand forints, which the store is obliged to accept for 250 New Zealand dollars (about 57 thousand forints). Of course, there are hardly any people who would do the shopping with an expensive gold Death Star, but nothing is impossible.
