Whilst the Star WarsTM universe revolves around the battle between the light and dark forces of the Jedi and Sith, Han SoloTM and ChewbaccaTM began their journey in the limbo between the two. Smugglers driven by the need to survive in a harsh and dangerous galaxy, the motley crew of the Millennium Falcon eventually sided with the Rebel Alliance and, in the process, became two of sci-fi cinema’s greatest anti-heroes.
Arguably the most beloved duo in the whole of the Star Wars universe, Han Solo and Chewbacca were largely inseparable on screen from the moment they debuted in 1977. Their friendship and chemistry have made this pairing legendary, cementing them as two of the most popular characters in the entire ‘Skywalker Saga’.
The final coin in our four-coin collection inspired by Star Wars, this release marks a culmination of our numismatic commemoration of the greatest duos in the Star Wars universe. This coin completes the collection and is a fitting finale to The Royal Mint’s Character Duos coin collection.
