• '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.

      I had read that E.E. "Doc" Smith's "Lensmen" series from the 1930s was supposedly an influence not only on Star Wars (and Lucas) but

      Those have always been overpriced, IMHO. Sad, really. But they are quality cards, so I guess you pay what you get for.

      They sure like that 3-2 score; every one of the Pens' three wins so far ended that way, after tonight's Cup Final rematch against the Sharks.
