Han Solo 2oz Silver Coin in Ultra High ReliefLIMITED AVAILABILITY – ORDER YOURS NOW
Following the rapid sell-out of all the Han Solo coins in the New Zealand Mint Star Wars
Classic collection, they were inspired to use 2oz of silver and Ultra High Relief technology to recreate the struggling Han Solo as he is frozen in carbonite in Star Wars
: The Empire Strikes Back
. Naturally, they expect demand to be high for this one too!What Is Ultra High Relief?
Ultra High Relief is achieved by using cutting edge minting techniques which allow the image to rise much higher than the face of the coin. To achieve Ultra High Relief quality, individual coins must be repeatedly struck by specially made dies on special presses. These extra strikes not only add more depth to the coin’s design, but they also a deeper, brighter lustre, which ensures that every millimetre of the intricate design shines through. In fact, the design is usually raised so far from the face of the coin that you can’t even stack two coins on top of each other without them wobbling. The coin can feel more like a tiny sculpture than a standard coin!
The coin is nestled in black velvet inside a branded Star Wars
coin case –angled to display the 3D aesthetic of the coin. The serialised Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. Along with the Star Wars
themed outer box, this coin is truly unique. And with a worldwide mintage of only 5,000, half the mintage of the previous sold out Han Solo 1oz Silver Coin; you will want to get yours today
