With the release of Darth Vader(TM) today, you can give yourself to the Dark Side and purchase every note in the Star Wars: A New Hope Silver Coin Note series which includes Luke Skywalker(TM), Obi Wan Kenobi(TM), R2D2 (TM) & C3PO(TM), Han Solo(TM) & Chewbacca(TM), Princess Leia(TM).

The menacing Vader, determined to recover the Death Star(TM) plans that were stolen by the Rebel Alliance(TM), didn’t count on the resolve of Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO to stop him. Even after Vader killed his former Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, he couldn’t keep the Rebel heroes, their X-wings(TM), or the Millennium Falcon(TM) from destroying the Death Star. Instead, Vader and his TIE(TM) starfighter were flung into the far reaches of space.

To memorialise the persistent threat that Vader posed to everyone around him, this silver coin note features two images of the Sith(TM) Lord: one brandishing his Lightsaber(TM), and one warning the defiant Princess Leia. The design incorporates colour printing and engraving along with the Star Wars: A New Hope logo.

Made from 5g pure silver, this note is a precious keepsake for any fan. A unique serial number is printed on the note and it is delivered inside a Star Wars-themed protective sleeve. Details of the coin note’s authenticity are printed on the reverse of the sleeve.

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

This note is a limited edition so get yours soon and ensure your Star Wars: A New Hope Collection is complete. It is useless to resist!
