Imperial Star Destroyer added to new Star Wars Ships coin collection

The backbone of the powerful Imperial Starfleet, the Star Destroyer™, is the second coin to be added to our Star Wars Ships coin collection. It featured in a number of Star Wars movies including Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

This ship evolved from the smaller Venator-class Star Destroyer, a mainstay of the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars. This later Imperial-class built upon the strengths of these Republic predecessors.

After the dissolution of the Republic, the Emperor ordered a massive military build-up, crushing dissent and bringing systems that had been beyond the reach of Republic law under Imperial rule. For planet after planet across the galaxy, the Imperial Star Destroyer became a symbol of this new order. Citizens weary of chaos and war cheered the sight of these giant dagger-shaped warships, while pirates and slavers trembled at the thought of confronting them.

Following the design for the Millennium Falcon coin, the Star Destroyer coin is also coloured and engraved, featuring part of the design blueprint for the ship. Presented in a high-quality Star Wars branded and stylized inner coin case and themed outer packaging, it would make an ideal gift for Star Wars fans or coin collectors. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case.
