Star Destroyers are capital ships in the fictional Star Wars universe. The Imperial Star Destroyer, which first appears in the first seconds of Star Wars (1977), is “the signature vessel of the Imperial fleet”. The term “Star Destroyer” also refers to other vessels in the franchise. Numerous Star Destroyer models and toys have been released, and the iconic scene featuring the vessel's first appearance has been called “a milestone in special effects history”. The iconic Star Destroyer first appears in the opening scene of Star Wars, as Darth Vader's flagship The Devastator chases the Tantive IV above Tatooine. This appearance shows the Imperial ship's massive size in comparison to the Tantive IV. Imperial-class Star Destroyers appear not only throughout the original trilogy, but also in Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One (2016). Rey scavenges material from a crashed Imperial-class Star Destroyer in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). The original trilogy also feature a massive Super Star Destroyer that serves as Darth Vader's flagship in The Empire Strikes Back, and it is the Imperial command ship at the climax of Return of the Jedi. Rey pilots the Millennium Falcon through the wreckage of the crashed Super Star Destroyer Ravager during a chase scene in The Force Awakens.
The coin's reverse features a striking and modern design using colour and engraving to display a section of the blueprint for the Star Destroyer. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “STAR DESTROYER” – the name of the coin. On the top of the coin, the inscriptions: “1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER” – the weight and the fineness of the Silver and “LUCASFILM LTD.” - an American film and television production company. The coin's obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “NIUE” – the issue country, “TWO DOLLARS” – the face value and “2017” – the issue date and “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen.
