The Wait is Over…Luke Skywalker Features on Seventh Star Wars Classic Collectible Coin!

Available in 1oz Silver, ¼oz & 1oz Gold Coins

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.
