Limited Edition Star Wars 40th Anniversary Silver Coin Available Now!

We are thrilled to announce the release of a special, limited edition rectangular coin to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, which thundered onto the big screen on May 25, 1977 and remains an enduring story to this day.

With its ground-breaking special effects, the film leaped off screens and immersed audiences in "a galaxy far, far away...." The story follows Luke Skywalker, thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance after meeting Obi-Wan Kenobi. Together they enlist a team of unlikely allies on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire.

The film gave us one of the greatest movie villains in Darth Vader; a galaxy of amazing heroes; epic space battles; and introduced us to the Force – bringing the phrase "May the Force be with you" into common usage. Starting with an opening crawl that just went on and on and on until the cinema seemed too small to hold it, this was followed by a massive ship soaring overhead that just kept coming and coming and coming, filling the screen with its massive bulk; these first few minutes of the movie created an immediate sense of immersion and awe of what was to come!

Star Wars was nominated for 10 Oscars in 1978, and received seven. It remains an enduring story to this day – most likely due to its affiliation with multiple genres: science fiction, fantasy, action, romance and drama.

This striking commemorative 1oz fine silver coin features a replica image of the original 1977 Star Wars poster. The design incorporates both colour and engraving to best effect. It comes presented in a clever perspex holder, designed to frame the coin and allow for easy display. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the packaging, and both are branded and stylized to commemorate the 40th Anniversary. This makes it an ideal gift for any Star Wars fan or coin collector.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a unique Star Wars 40th Anniversary coin. With a worldwide mintage of only 10,000 coins, you will need to be in quick to get yours!
