In the future, Star Wars coins can be used to purchase not an X-Wing, but rather, a drink at the bar, or anything in our world. Yes sir, Star War coins will be minted in the near future, where they will end up as legal tender on Niue, a tiny South Pacific island nation. While they are legal tender, I don’t think anyone would be willing to use those over something as trifle as drinks – after all, they are made out of pure silver and come packaged in special cases which will hold a quartet of coins, while others are made of silver-plated base metal and sold in blister packs. Needless to say, these will be far more expensive in value (as well as the purchase price) compared to the $2 face value.
Selling for $393 per case, there will be two cases in the bunch, holding four 1-ounce silver coins each. Not only do they look good in a display cabinet, the Darth Vader case will even emit the famous heavy breathing sound of the Sith Lord. Inside, the coins will feature Emperor Palpatine, the Death Star, a stormtrooper and the Dark Lord of the Sith himself.
