Imperial Star Destroyer Added To The New Star Wars Ships Coin Collection

STAR WARS SHIPS – Star DestroyerTM
The backbone of the powerful Imperial Starfleet, the Star DestroyerTM, is the second coin to be added to the new Star Wars Ships coin collection from New Zealand Mint. It featured in a number of Star Wars movies including Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. With a worldwide mintage of only 10,000 coins, you might have to hurry to get yours! Start your collection today. 

Following the design of the first coin in the collection – the Millennium Falcon – the Star Destroyer coin is also coloured and engraved, featuring part of the design blueprint for the ship. Presented in a high-quality Star Wars branded and stylized inner coin packaging, it is a fabulous collectible for any fan! The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case.

 Star Destroyer

This wedge-shaped ship evolved from the smaller Venator-class Star Destroyer, a mainstay of the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars. This later Imperial-class built upon the strengths of these Republic predecessors.

It’s a capital ship bristling with weapons emplacements. Turbolasers and tractor beam projectors dot its surface. Its belly hangar bay can launch TIE fighters, boarding craft, land assault units, hyperspace probes, or be used to hold captured craft. In the days of the Empire, its bustling bridge would be staffed by the finest crewers in the Imperial starfleet. Its presence in a system marks matters of extreme Imperial import.

Millennium Falcon Launches Star Wars Ships Coin Collection

FIRST RELEASE – STAR WARS SHIPS – Millennium FalconTM

This stunning 1oz silver coin kicks off the new Star Wars Ships coin collection from New Zeland Mint. Demand is sure to be high for this one, so don’t delay and start your collection today before they disappear into space! 

This officially licensed coloured and engraved silver coin features part of the design blueprint for the YT-1300 Millennium Falcon. The coin comes presented in a high-quality Star Wars branded and stylized coin packaging. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case and there is a limited worldwide mintage of only 10,000 coins.

Millennium Falcon

Despite her humble origins and shabby exterior, the Millennium Falcon has played a role in some of the greatest victories of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic. The Falcon looks like a worn-out junker, but beneath her hull she’s full of surprises. A succession of owners, from Lando Calrissian and Han Solo to Gannis Ducain, have made special modifications that boosted the freighter’s speed, shielding and firepower to impressive – and downright illegal – levels. The price of such tinkering? The Falcon can be unpredictable, with her hyperdrive particularly balky. Despite her flaws, she’s beloved by her owners – Han Solo and Chewbacca have spent years searching the galaxy for the ship they once called home.

INTERESTING FACT: The Falcon was built in several different sizes. Complete models of the Millennium Falcon ranged from very small — small enough to fit in the palm of a hand — to over four feet. An almost full-size replica of the ship’s exterior was made for The Empire Strikes Back. It measured almost 60-feet-long.

The Wait Is Over…Luke Skywalker Features On Seventh Star Wars Classic Collectible Coin

NEW RELEASE : STAR WARS CLASSIC – LUKE SKYWALKERTM
Available in 1oz Silver, ¼oz & 1oz Gold Coins

LIMITED SUPPLY – DON’T MISS OUT. ORDER YOURS TODAY

These officially licensed silver and gold proof coins feature an engraving of Luke Skywalker standing by his X-34 landspeeder on the planet of Tatooine, in Star Wars: A New Hope.

A Proof coin is the absolute highest quality coin a mint can produce; they have no equal in sharpness or brilliance. These specialty made coins are so finely sculptured that extreme details are noticeable. They are undoubtedly the best choice if you want to own or gift a coin with the highest levels of craftsmanship and design detail.

But it’s not the quality of the finish alone that makes Proof coins so appealing. Each coin is approved by the country that issues it and that country’s effigy appears on the obverse of the coin (in this case Queen Elizabeth II’s head). This makes the coin legal tender in that country. The government of that country also agree the amount of coins that can be produced. This is called the mintage. The coins in the mintage therefore become limited edition coins, as legally no more of the same coin can be produced. Proof coins are also often struck with low mintages, which make them rarer than other commemorative coins.

All these coins also come presented in a high-quality Star Wars branded and stylized packaging. The Certificate of Authenticity sits within the coin case and contains the specifications of the coin and its number in the mintage.
