An Ultra High Relief Death Star Appears

With the Death Star TM being the Empire’s ultimate weapon, our third Ultra High Relief 2oz silver coin for 2018 features the threatening space station. There’s only 5,000 available worldwide, so before the Death Star becomes operational, hurry and order yours.

The Death StarTM was the Empire’s ultimate weapon: a moon-sized space station with the ability to destroy an entire planet. But the Emperor and Imperial officers, like Grand Moff TarkinTM, underestimated the tenacity of the Rebel AllianceTM, who refused to bow to this technological terror.

Supreme Chancellor PalpatineTM had plotted to build the first dreaded Death Star and upon completed construction, Rebel Alliance spies managed to steal data tapes containing its schematics. Their goal: to find a weakness within the superstructure and exploit it. Darth VaderTM, an Imperial enforcer serving the Emperor and Grand Moff Tarkin, led an Imperial hunt to recover the plans. While he proved unsuccessful on that front, the SithTM captured Princess Leia OrganaTM, a suspected Rebel sympathizer. In a display of the Death Star’s might, Grand Moff Tarkin used the space station to destroy Princess Leia’s home planet of AlderaanTM, killing billions.

It was later discovered that a proton torpedo, shot precisely into a small exhaust port, could trigger a reaction that would destroy the Death Star. The Rebels launched a desperate attack, and a young pilot named Luke SkywalkerTM - strong with the ForceTM - flew an X-wingTM down the Death Star’s trench, making the impossible shot. The space station was destroyed, and Tarkin with it.

Like the coins before it, this Death Star Ultra High Relief 2oz Silver Coin is encased inside a Star Wars branded coin case and nestled in black velvet. The coin is angled to artistically display the imposing Ultra High Relief image, which seems like it’s bursting out of its coin capsule! The Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case which is packaged in a Star Wars themed outer box. Altogether, a fantastic collectible for any Sith fan or Star Wars collector.
