Today marks the launch of a new Star Wars™ Coin Collection, Faces of the Empire™. The entire collection will be released over the next two years. And, as the name suggests, it will feature a range of distinctive faces of the Empire. We are excited to bring you these uniquely shaped coins that add an extra dimension to the design, beginning with the most recognisable “face” of all – Darth Vader™!
Naturally, this first coin replicates one of the most recognisable “faces”, that of the iconic villain Darth Vader™ - a terrifying union of man and machine hidden beneath black robes, forbidding armour and a unique helmet that strikes fear into the hearts of Jedi™ and Rebels™ alike.
Not only is this coin minted in the shape of the intimidating helmet that Darth Vader uses, but the design incorporates additional relief to give the image a 3D look. The obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as a limited-edition coin.
This collection is packaged inside a new compact and modern Star Wars branded case - designed with a window to enable you to view the prize inside. The Certificate of Authenticity can be found on the back of the case along with a holographic sticker confirming the number in the 10,000 mintage.
As the first in the collection, and for such an iconic character, we think this one will be very much in demand. So, it would be wise to lower your defences and order one soon!
