Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back original poster features on collectible coin

We are excited to announce the release of the next limited edition Star Wars poster rectangular coin featuring The Empire Strikes Back. Released in May 1980 it was the second instalment in the original Star Wars trilogy. You'll no doubt recall the battle scene between the Rebels and gigantic Imperial Snow-walkers on the planet Hoth, the frenetic chase scene through the asteroid field where the Millennium Falcon escapes TIE fighters while darting between giant tumbling boulders, the levitation of Luke's X-wing fighter by Yoda, and the climactic lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader!

But this film was more than just an action movie — it allowed us to delve deeper into the depths of the key characters. Luke ultimately leaves his farmboy enthusiasm behind and finds a deeper connection to his friends and his destiny. The roguish Han Solo finds himself betrayed by his friend. Princess Leia embraces her own destiny and starts to embody that regal steel we see in a future General Organa. Everyone is pushed to be more than they were in Star Wars.

It was also the first time we began to understand the Force and see how powerful the dark side can be. The movie was darker, edgier and more emotion-filled. It’s the first time we hear that Darth Vader is Luke's father, and one of the most iconic moments in film history is born!

In celebration, this 1oz fine silver collectible coin is licensed by Disney. Its striking design incorporates both colour and engraving. The coin is also cleverly presented in a perspex holder designed to frame the coin and allow for easy display. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the packaging, and both are themed to complement the coin. This makes it an ideal gift for any Star Wars fan or coin collector.

If you are one of the lucky ones to own the previously released Star Wars 40th Anniversary poster coin, you won't want to miss adding this one to your collection! And watch this space, as you know what they say — everything comes in threes...
