It was a dark time for Star Wars toys. With toy companies battling for ultimate power in the universe, could a simple coin bring balance to The Force and inject excitement into a waning toy line?

In Coining a Galaxy, James Gallo & Mark Salotti explore the phenomenon of Kenner's Vintage POWER OF THE FORCE, DROIDS & EWOKS Star Wars Collector Coins...from their concept and creation to their circulation and their untimely cancellation!

Beautifully designed by Jeff Correll and spanning 82 pages, Coining a Galaxy includes a gallery depicting every known Kenner Star Wars Collector Coin, classified according to rarity, with pre-production and unreleased coins, text outlines and a checklist with price guide.

It will be available for $19.99 at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida from August the 23rd to the 26th at booth 1221 and then available for online purchase at: www.coiningagalaxy.com

With a limited edition of only 500 books in the galaxy, get yours before there's a bounty.

There's never been anything like it.
