Jabba the Hutt Gold Coin by the New Zealand Mint (also 1 Year YouTube Anniversary!)
I got the silver-plated coin on the right nearly two years ago, but I kind of wrote off the gold-plated version since the only one I could find was quite expensive. I recently found a good deal, though, and got the gold version for just a tiny bit more than I originally paid for the silver one. It’s basically the same as the silver version, so feel free to check that review for details. The gold version apparently had an edition size of 25,000, which is still a LOT for something like this.
I discovered a couple of days ago that I exactly one year had passed since I started making videos on YouTube, so I made a YouTube video in commemoration of that where I also talked about these these coins.
I don’t really know how many people read this site regularly, but you may have noticed a bit of a drop in posting frequency here, and a rise in the number of YouTube videos. The fact of the matter is that I can get hundreds of views in a day or two when I post a video on YouTube, and just a handful (if that) when I post something here. I also get some pretty good comments and interaction on YouTube and very little here.
I have no intention of stopping what I do on this site. There are a lot of minor items that don’t really merit making a full video, and I want this site to act as a sort of permanent repository of information about Jabba merchandise. But at the same time, a lot of my time and attention is going to YouTube. So if you’re interested in the kind of thing that I cover on this site, I would recommend subscribing to my YouTube channel.
