The Force™ is strong with this one! Introducing a brand-new Star Wars Premium Silver Foil Collection of replica comic book covers from New Zealand Mint!

This first striking foil features the Star Wars #1 cover from April 1977, commemorating the first issue of the Star Wars series of comic books. The replica design is based on Howard Chaykinís original Star Wars convention poster, which became one of the most valuable posters in the Star Wars collecting world.

This vibrant 35g fine silver collectible incorporates both colour and engraving, and features Luke Skywalker™, Obi-Wan Kenobi™, Princess Leia™ and Han Solo™, Darth Vader™, the Death Star™, X-Wing™, Y-Wing™ and TIE-Fighters™ in the background. Interestingly some of the colours used on the original poster were incorrect, with Darth Vader in green and Luke and Obi-Wanís Lightsabers™ coloured red!

The foil is housed in an innovative acrylic holder, designed to allow for easy display. Packaged inside a complementary Star Wars themed carrier, this makes it a unique collectible for any Star Wars fan.

The obverse of the foil features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and it is legal tender in Niue.

With only 10, 000 foils available worldwide, donít delay in placing your order for this innovative precious metal replica!
