Final Star Wars Ships coin - Darth Vader’s distinctive TIE Advanced X1™

All good things must come to an end, and so today marks the final release in our Star Wars Ships collection. Like the previous coins in this collection, the TIE Advanced X1 1oz Silver Coin is also coloured and engraved, featuring part of the design blueprint for the ship. When compared to the TIE/LN Fighter this modified TIE has bent wings, but is no less terrifying.

Darth Vader piloted this distinctive experimental fighter during the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars: A New Hope. As the Death Star closed in on the Rebel’s secret base, the Rebels mounted an attack, with Vader himself entering the fray in his modified TIE. Streaming through the Death Star trench and about to finish off the last of the Rebels -- Luke Skywalker in his X-wing -- Vader and his wingmen are attacked from behind by the Millennium Falcon. Ricocheted away from the Death Star and spun out of control, Vader is unable to stop Luke. The space station is destroyed, but Vader survives as he flies into the far reaches of space.

This unique coin is presented in a high-quality coin case and Star Wars branded outer box, so would make an ideal gift for Star Wars fans or coin collectors. The themed Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. With a worldwide mintage of only 10,000 coins, make sure you lock on to this last target!
