Project Description

STAR WARS SHIPS

DESCRIPTION

This range is the only one to focus exclusively on the hardware that makes up a large part of the Star Wars Universe. Six coins in total, they’re presented as blueprints on the reverse face. There’s very little in the way of struck detail with these, and they’re quite hard to read because of the relatively small size, but they look decent enough. An unusual set, they have a recommended price of $80.00 USD each.

STAR WARS EPISODE VII – THE FORCE AWAKENS

DESCRIPTION

A series of three character coins, these showcase the new characters from the first of the latest trilogy, The Force Awakens. These have the same basic format as the Star Wars Classic range, but choose colour over a detailed strike. This is something that is probably more attractive to the casual collector, rather than the more dedicated coin enthusiast. They have a recommended price of $85.00 USD each.

STAR WARS EPISODE VIII – THE LAST JEDI

DESCRIPTION

Three character coins again, these focus on the big bad and on a pair of more established characters than The Force Awakens issues. In most respects they follow the same design ethos and will appeal to the same group as before. A little forgettable compared to Star Wars Classic for the coin collector, we know that coloured coins seem to have greater appeal to the casual collector.

STAR WARS STAND-ALONE MOVIES

DESCRIPTION

Simple proof finish one ounce silver coins, the three released to date cover the two standalone movies, Rogue One (two coins) and Solo. Not particularly adventurous again, they are well produced issues for the casual collector and the Star Wars fan. There will likely be coins issued to cover any future movies like this.

STAR WARS MOVIE POSTERS

DESCRIPTION

A series of one troy ounce fine silver coins in a rectangular format that reproduce the well regarded movie poster art of all the movies. Currently released three per year, the last two of the three trilogies are due later in 2019.

The coins come in superb solid acrylic display frames which look great. Mintage is set at 10,000 and the recommended price is $85.00 USD. Early coins have seen some aftermarket appreciation.
