A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

We are thrilled to reveal the first silver coin note in a new Star Wars Silver Coin Note Collection – Rebel hero, Luke Skywalker™.

Raised by his aunt and uncle on a Tatooine moisture farm, Luke knows nothing of the Force or Jedi and longs for a more exciting life. Soon he will have it. With his Uncle's purchase of new droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, a chain of events is put in place that will change Luke -- and the galaxy -- forever.

This first striking 5g pure silver coin note features collaged images of Luke Skywalker from the movie along with the movie's logo and the Rebel Alliance starbird. The starbird symbol is most often spotted on pilots' helmets and can also be seen on uniforms at the Resistance base in The Force Awakens. Interestingly, the design may have roots in the phoenix/starbird graffiti Sabine Wren leaves behind in Star Wars Rebels.

The combination of engraving and colour printing on this silver note creates an interesting dimension. The unique number in the mintage is also printed on to the note and it is delivered inside a Star Wars themed protective sleeve. Details of the coin note's authenticity are printed on the reverse of the sleeve.

The Star Wars: A New Hope Collector's Album is also included with the purchase of this first silver coin note. This hardcover album features a page for each of the six notes in the collection - which will also include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo & Chewbacca, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader and R2-D2 & C-3PO. The album is Star Wars themed, with each page designed to complement the corresponding note - including a brief summary of the character's contribution to the film.

The obverse of the silver note features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue.

With a strictly limited supply of only 50,000, make it your mission to get this first release with the complimentary album.
