UPDATE: The Royal Proclamation has now been released, so we know a little bit more information about the reverse designs – they will feature depictions of:

  • R2-D2 and C-3PO
  • Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine
  • Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia
  • Han Solo and Chewbacca

All of the reverse designs will also include the inscription ‘STAR WARS’ and feature Martin Jennings’ UK King Charles III effigy on the obverse.

Today, the FIRST EVER UK Star Wars 50p coin has been announced as part of a brand-new four-coin collection.

The original Star Wars™ trilogy helped create an all-encompassing fictional universe that has since amassed one of the largest fan bases in the world. 

Whilst details about the designs are still top secret, we do know that the coins will feature Martin Jennings’ UK King Charles III effigy on the obverse.

So, don’t miss out on being the first to hear more about these Star Wars™ coins, including the designs and when you can get your hands on them.

Sign up below today and May the 4th be with you!
