Ultra High Relief 2oz fine silver coin featuring one of the greatest heroes of the Rebellion, Han Solo, frozen in carbonite.
The unique Ultra High Relief effect is achieved by using cutting edge minting techniques which allow the image to rise much higher than the face of the coin. The process not only adds more depth to the coin's design, but a deeper, brighter lustre which ensures that every millimetre of the intricate design shines through. It feels more like a tiny sculpture than a standard coin.
The coin is nestled in black velvet inside a branded Star Wars coin case –angled to display the 3D aesthetic of the coin. The serialised Certificate of Authenticity also sits within the coin case. Along with the Star Wars themed outer box, this coin makes a truly unique gift.
The worldwide mintage is limited to 5,000 coins, so hurry to get yours as previous Han Solo coins have sold out!
