Star Wars Celebrates 40th Anniversary With Commemorative Coin


The Star Wars franchise is about to reach its 40th anniversary for the theatrical release of the original film and to commemorate the occasion Disney and Lucasfilm are offering a unique collector's coin. The one-ounce silver commemorative coin has been commissioned by New Zealand Mint and it features a replica image of the original 1977 poster from the film's release. There will only be 10,000 coins minted and orders are now being taken for 80 U.S. dollars. While the actual value of the coin is $2 in New Zealand's currency, its value will continue to rise due to the limited amount of coins being produced.
