After these releases, the New Zealand Mint struck chibi coins from the DC Comics, Harry Potter, and Star Wars universes! These adorable Chibi coins each weigh 1 troy ounce and contain .999 fine silver. Additionally, they arrive in Proof condition, further adding to their appeal.

What is Chibi? What is the Design of Each Chibi Coin?

Chibi, a Japanese slang word, usually describes something short, chubby, and cute. This unique art form found its way into anime through its popular use in manga comics and graphic novels. The Batman Chibi Coin and Harry Potter Chibi Coin were the first two coins in this exciting New Zealand Mint series. The Chibi coins that follow also fall into the DC and Harry Potter realms, in addition to Star Wars and possibly beyond. The obverse of all the Chibi Coins features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II with her royal diadem. The inscriptions display the Queen’s name, along with the legal tender country, year, face value, weight, purity, and copyright information for the character. Keep an eye out for more characters, coming soon! Therefore, we will keep you posted right here.

In the Brightest Day, in Blackest Night… 

…The Green Lantern Chibi joins the fight! Bullion Exchanges rings in the newest arrival of the 2020 Chibi Collection: the 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver Green Lantern Chibi Coin! As the ninth release in the Chibi Coin Collection from the New Zealand Mint, the Green Lantern follows in the footsteps of other DC Heroes such as Wonder Woman and The Flash. Originally a railroad engineer named Adam Scott, the Green Lantern received his powers from a magical ring he crafted after discovering a magical lantern. However, in 1959, the Green Lantern received a new backstory. Hal Jordan, a former combat pilot, was gifted the ring from a dying alien. Soon after, he was commissioned as an officer in the Green Lantern Corps, tasked with keeping the peace across the universe. Brighten up your day (and night) by adding the Green Lantern to your collection!

Back to the Beginning: First-Ever Chibi Coin Releases

Here Comes Harry!

Perhaps one of the most famous book and movie franchises on the planet, Harry Potter continues to delight fans, also known as “Potterheads”, across the globe. The story of the young boy wizard who grows up to defeat the evil villain Voldemort, with the help of his friends Ron and Hermione, inspires audiences across multiple generations. So add a bit of magic to your coin collection with the “Gryffindor-able” Harry Potter Chibi Coins!

The reverse of the Harry Potter Chibi Coin displays a colorized Harry Potter in the Japanese chibi-style. An enlarged head and small body representative of the Chibi form give Harry an adorable childlike appearance. Moreover, his hair, slightly brushed aside, artfully reveals his prominent lightning bolt scar. Additionally, Harry wears his Gryffindor scarf and cloak, showing off his House Pride.

Fire Up the Bat-Signal!

He is vengeance, he is the night, he is…Batman! First appearing in 1939 in DC comics, Batman (also known as the wealthy playboy and philanthropist Bruce Wayne), notably fights crime without the use of any superpowers. Instead, he uses his genius intellect, superior martial arts skills, and assistance from his trusty sidekick, Robin, and steadfast butler, Alfred, to take down Gotham’s most wanted. However, Batman’s most famous adversary, the Joker, arguably remains his most challenging (and most compelling) foe to this day. Don’t wait—bring home the hero Gotham deserves today!

The reverse of the Batman chibi coin also depicts the caped crusader as a cute chibi character, wearing his classic grey and black Batsuit. He additionally wears his recognizable yellow utility belt as his iconic black cape seemingly billows behind him.

Presenting the Princess of Themyscira

Created during WWII, the character of Wonder Woman has captivated readers and inspired movie and TV audiences for several decades. Since she is one of the founding members of the Justice League, Wonder Woman (also known as Diana Prince) serves as a role model for young heroes worldwide. Furthermore, her lasso compels evildoers to speak the truth, and her kind heart inspires fans of all ages to show mercy and compassion to all. Although previously depicted on TV by Lynda Carter, and currently in the DC Universe films by Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot, other impressive women like Lucy Lawless, Rosario Dawson, and Cobie Smulders have lent their voices to the animated superheroine. Now, DC fans across the nation can add this amazing Amazonian to their coin collection with this charming Chibi Wonder Woman.

The reverse of the second DC Chibi Coin depicts Wonder Woman wearing her iconic costume with her famous deflective arm bracers and boomerang tiara. Also, the design adheres to the Japanese Chibi style, as Wonder Woman’s head is larger than her body.

Delve into The Dark Side with Darth Vader

After Wonder Woman comes Darth Vader. As one of the most widely recognized villains in all of cinema and pop culture, Darth Vader invokes a fearsome image whenever he appears on-screen or in literature. Born as the innocent, idealistic Anakin Skywalker, he began training as a Jedi under the instruction of Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. After he was manipulated and lured to the Dark Side by Emperor Palpatine, Anakin subsequently took on the moniker “Darth Vader”. Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen portrayed Anakin in the prequel trilogy (Episodes 1-3), while  James Earl Jones lent his voice to the iconic villain for the original trilogy (Episodes 4-6). Star Wars fans across the galaxy should add this coin to their portfolio before it ventures off to another collection far, far, away!

The reverse of the Darth Vader Chibi coin, the fourth release in the series, shows off a fully colorized image of the Sith Lord, rendered in the Chibi style. He wears his famous black armor and helmet.

Continuing to be minted as only 2,000 coins, these coins could be gone in a Flash!

The Brightest Witch of Her Age

Hermione Granger is the leading lady of the Harry Potter film and novel collection. Often thought of as the brainiac of the golden trio, Hermione is well respected as an intelligent, persistent, and powerful witch even if she tends to be punctilious. One of her most famous lines is “It’s Levi-OH-sa, not Levio-SA!” Born to muggle (non-magical) parents, Hermione assimilates herself well in the magical wizarding world with almost no help aside from her own research through books. Also, she is a wonderful role model, especially for young girls.

Hermione Granger (SPOILERS!) grows up to become the Minister of Magic and marries her friend Ron Weasley. So gift the “Brightest Witch of Her Age” coin to your favorite Harry Potter fan before these Chibi coins “disapparate” for good!

Most notably, the top characters who donned the lightning bolt suit include Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, and then Wally West. This silver coin features the classic costume of red and gold.
