Meanwhile, In Niue, Star Wars Coins Are Currency

The New Zealand Mint plans to use The Force to reignite the struggling economy of Niue, a South Pacific island nation with a population of just under 1400. The coins' face value will be $2, but worth about $20. While you can buy them separately, they will be considered legal tender on Niue, in a somewhat bizarre effort to stimulate its economy: Niue will receive royalty payments for adopting the coins, which will also feature Queen Elizabeth II on the back.
