Following hot on the heels of the sold-out Star Wars 40th Anniversary coin, New Zealand Mint has produced another unique, rectangular poster coin. This time they celebrate Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the second instalment in the original trilogy which was released in May 1980. Recall the battle scene between the Rebels and gigantic Imperial Snow-walkers on the planet Hoth, the frenetic chase scene through the asteroid field where the Millennium Falcon escapes TIE fighters while darting between giant tumbling boulders, the levitation of Luke’s X-wing fighter by Yoda, and the climactic lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader!
