  3. Something for the Nerdy Dads

  4. If you are like me and grew up with a Star Wars fanatic as a father, this might just be the best gift for dad this year. The New Zealand Mint has created a one-ounce silver Star Wars Bullion: Darth Vader coin, and it's selling for $20.77. That's right, Darth Vader is on it. Unfortunately, you'll have to deal with your dad saying, "[Insert Name], I am your father" all weekend (sorry!).

    But wait, we also know that there are Trekkie dads out there so you might want to look at the 2016 one-ounce 50th anniversary limited edition Silver Star Trek: Enterprise coin.
