A whole new universe of science fiction royalty was born with the creation of the epic space opera saga, Star WarsTM. Now, more than 45 years since the first film reached the silver screen, Royal Mint UK are proud to bring this incredibly popular film series to UK coinage for the very first time.
Since its cinematic debut in 1977, a whole host of unique and wonderful beings have inhabited the Star Wars universe, offering a veritable galaxy of intermingling species. With a cast of characters unlike any other, it speaks volumes that two of the most endearing of this intergalactic ensemble are R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Appearing in more films within the franchise than any other character, these droids hold a special place in the hearts of Star Wars fans to this very day. Considered by many as one of the greatest science fiction pairings of all time, the iconic, memorable and inseparable duo will forever be synonymous with the Star Wars franchise.
