The Millennium Falcon has landed on a 50p coin in the latest collectable Star Wars series from the Royal Mint.

The coin depicts a silhouette of the fictional starship and the Rebel Alliance Starbird symbol, which is revealed when it tilts in the light.

It is one of a series of coins dedicated to the vehicles featured in the Star Wars films.

Rebecca Morgan, from the Royal Mint in Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taf, said the vehicles were “iconic”.

Ms Morgan added: “We are excited to enthuse new and existing coin collectors across the world and capture the imaginations of Star Wars’ thriving fan base.”

Other coins launching in 2024 will feature the TIE Fighter, X-Wing, and Death Star II.

The Mint first released a series of Star Wars coins last year to celebrate Return of the Jedi’s 40th anniversary.

The collection featured some of the most famous characters from the film series, including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca.
