A Symbol Synonymous with Star Wars now Immortalized in Silver!
The Galactic Empire is the name of the government/ruling body that replaced the ‘Old Republic’ after the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy – and served as the ‘bad guy’ force in the original Trilogy of Star Wars movies. Led by Sith Emperor Palpatine, the Galactic Empire is the largest military force in the entire galaxy! Their symbol was well-known and feared across millions of planets across hundreds of star-systems!
The Galactic Empire sigil is one of the most iconic and recognizable in the entire world, so much so that even non-Star Wars fans recognize it! Almost every piece of Original Trilogy Star Wars merchandise ever made features this logo!
Did you know? During the climactic battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy (with Sith Lord Palpatine intervening)– look closely at the window behind their duel on the spaceship’s command bridge -- it is an almost exact recreation of this very symbol!
An Iconic Empire’s Sigil & A True Collecting Rarity from Disney!
The 2018- & 2019-Star Wars pieces were all incredibly popular and lead to almost immediate sellouts with mintages of 250,000 each... so saying collector demand for Star Wars Silver is at an all-time high would be quite the understatement!
But, these new Galactic Empire coins are kicking it up a notch – with a maximum mintage of just 25,000 total coins! That is right, these 2021 Galactic Empire symbol coins are more than 10-times rarer than some of the prior Star Wars bullion coins!
The obverse of the design features the officially licensed "Galactic Empire" sigil that can be seen in the original Trilogy and the Rouge One films! The reverse of this Star Wars coin displays an image of Queen Elizabeth II and was produced by the Perth Mint on behalf of the Island of Niue Way.
