Hovertank Pilots™ are Imperial combat drivers who operate the Empire’s arsenal of armored repulsor vehicles, from troop transports to heavily armored hovertanks . This latest Star Wars™ coin in our Faces of the Empire™ Collection shows the distinctive ‘face’ of this lesser-known trooper - who was created and developed for the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story™.
Like those before it, this eighth coin is made from 1oz pure silver that has been shaped and coloured to represent the helmet. The face also includes light relief to give it a three-dimensional look and feel. On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, confirming the coin is legal tender.
These specialised drivers were actually lightly armored, relying instead on the thick skin of their vehicles to protect them in battle. But, with their head still visible as they piloted their vehicle, this robust helmet was a must!
Displaying your amazing new collectible will be a breeze, with a large window in the Star Wars-branded box you don’t even need to remove it! But if you do open the case, you’ll find the coin’s specifications confirming it as 1oz pure silver with a 10,000 mintage. A unique number and a Certificate of Authenticity are on the back of the box too. Navigate your way to ordering one today!
