Ruthless and efficient, Snowtroopers™ are stormtroopers trained for operations in arctic conditions and equipped with specialized gear to protect them against cold. During the Battle of Hoth™, the Imperial Snowtroopers, under General Veers’ command, were deployed from AT-AT Walkers and quickly and ruthlessly took control of Echo Base™. Their breath heaters and protective hoods, insulated suits and belt capes, rugged boots, heating units and survival backpacks meant they were ideally suited to the arctic conditions.
Forming part of our Faces of the Empire™ Collection, these unusual 1oz pure silver coins follow the shape and colour of the Imperial Snowtrooper’s helmet. The minimalist design includes extra relief to give the coin additional interest. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II can be seen on the obverse of the coin confirming it as legal tender.
The coin arrives packaged inside a compact and modern Star Wars™ branded case, incorporating a large window – ready to go straight on display! A Certificate of Authenticity can be found on the back of the case along with the coin’s unique number in the limited 10,000 mintage.
These troops were used solely in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™, so perhaps this unique cold-dwelling Snowtrooper collectible will become a hot property? Make sure you don’t get left out in the cold if you want this in your collection!
