• 'Star Wars' coins let you pay in Yodas

      New Zealand Mint releases another set of "Star Wars"-themed silver coins starring major characters from "A Phantom Menace."

      Following up on last year's popular launch of official "Star Wars" currency, the New Zealand Mint revealed a new set of coins featuring Queen Amidala, Yoda, Darth Maul, and Anakin from the epic sci-fi prequel trilogy.
      The colorful 1.6-inch diameter coins work as $2 legal tender on the tiny South Pacific island country of Niue and individually contain one ounce of .999 silver. A ripple in the Force indicates that few people would probably actually spend these collectors' items, and if they do, they may get clubbed over the head by Yoda's cane.

      After competing a nearly 18 mile run the idea of putting much effort into food was beyond me so I settled for a couple of bowls of Golden Grahms.
