Star Wars Classic - Darth Vader

A long time ago - in a galaxy far, far away....

Darth Vader is the solid representative of evil in the Star Wars family of movies, books, and cartoons. He has been thrilling fans since his screen debut in August of 1977, and has played a role in every Star Wars movie since. He has even been in almost every Star Wars book and cartoon. He was the destiny of the Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker, whom we find out in later movies is the father of Luke Skywalker.

Now, with the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, fans everywhere are eager to once again cheer as the Jedi battle the forces of the Dark Side. Modern Coin Mart is proud to announce Darth Vader's first appearance on new Star Wars collectible silver proofs. They're the first in a two-year coin series released by the New Zealand Mint featuring classic Star Wars characters.

Innocent, lovable Tweety is the centre of Granny's world; and why not? He's probably the smartest canary there is! In his first appearances on-screen, a remarkably different-looking Tweety showed he could be aggressive, even ruthless, when protecting himself from enemies. And while he adopted a softer appearance in time, don't be fooled by the innocent expression on Tweety's face as he famously exclaims "I tawt I taw a puddy tat!"
Tweety may be able to outsmart his adversary, but it doesn't hurt to have a little luck on his side; while Tweety is more than capable of escaping from Sylvester the Cat's clutches, he'll sometimes get a little help from Granny, a bulldog, or even gravity--but that won't stop the persistent cat from trying again!
