RIGHT NOW ON AN ISLAND FAR, FAR AWAY....


New Zealand’s mint has produced coins for Niue featuring Star Wars characters including Yoda, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker on one side and the Queen on the other. With a population of 2000, the tiny hurricane prone island nation is trying to add to its revenue by attracting the interest of international Star Wars fans and coin collectors. May the force be with them.

A bit disconcerting considering the economic and volatile climate, a country that considers 'star wars' sovereignty? The Sovereign Crown.
But Niue being such a small island in the pacific, reaching out to a big brother could mean everything in these perilous times we live in?

Evacuation perhaps ? Rangitoto College has more than 2000 students.
