NZ Mint: Star Wars #1 Thrilling Cover Immortalized on Premium Silver Foil

The Force is strong with this one! Introducing a brand-new Star Wars Premium Silver Foil Collection of replica comic book covers from New Zealand Mint!

This first striking foil features the Star Wars #1 cover from April 1977, commemorating the first issue of the Star Wars series of comic books. The replica design is based on Howard Chaykin’s original Star Wars convention poster, which became one of the most valuable posters in the Star Wars collecting world.

Click through for complete details.



This vibrant 35g fine silver collectible incorporates both color and engraving, and features Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia and Han Solo, Darth Vader, the Death Star, X-Wing, Y-Wing and TIE-Fighters in the background. Interestingly some of the colors used on the original poster were incorrect, with Darth Vader in green and Luke and Obi-Wan’s Lightsabers colored red!

The foil is housed in an innovative acrylic holder, designed to allow for easy display. Packaged inside a complimentary Star Wars themed carrier, this makes it a unique collectible for any Star Wars fan.

The obverse of the foil features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and it is legal tender in Niue.

With only 10, 000 foils available worldwide, don’t delay in placing your order for this innovative precious metal replica!

And if you are keen to be one of the first to hear about other Star Wars precious metal releases from New Zealand Mint, you can find them on Facebook, Twitter or sign up here to get Star Wars coin news emailed directly to your inbox!
