Spectacular Star Wars™ Spacecraft 50ps flying into your collection!

Get ready to embark on an epic journey through the galaxy with the Star Wars™ Spacecraft 50p series!

This 4-coin series features some of the most iconic spacecraft from the Star Wars™ universe, kicking off with the legendary Millennium Falcon…

Millennium Falcon 50p

The Millennium Falcon 50p features a design by Lucasfilm of the ship soaring through space, along with the Star Wars logo.

And here’s the coolest partthis coin also includes a special lenticular feature! Tilt the coin one way, and you’ll see the Millennium Falcon, tilt it the other way and you’ll catch a glimpse of the Rebel Alliance Starbird!

The lenticular feature shows both the Rebel Alliance Starbird and the Millennium Falcon when tilted.

Piloted by dynamic duo Han Solo and Chewbacca, the Millennium Falcon is perhaps the most recognisable ship in the entire Star Wars franchise. She was the star of countless legendary moments, such as making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, successfully navigating an asteroid field against 3720 to 1 odds and narrowly escaping the jaws of a giant space worm – to name just a few!

Did you know? George Lucas changed the original Millennium Falcon model at the last minute. He was inspired by a half eaten burger placed next to an olive on a toothpick and changed the shape of the ship to how we know it today.

Previous Star Wars™ Character Duos 50ps

Cast your mind back to the previous Star Wars Character Duos 50p series which caused a real buzz in the coin collecting community.

We saw beloved character duos such as C-3PO and R2-D2, Darth Vader and Emperor Palatine, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and of course Han Solo and Chewbacca feature on these coins. It was the most popular 50p coin series we’ve had in recent years…and the Star Wars™ Spacecraft series is set to be even bigger and better!

Change Checker LIVE 50p Swap is coming to Essex…

We’re extremely excited to announce that we’re bringing our Change Checker Live 50p Swap to Essex!

Join us on Saturday 13th April from 9am – 9pm in Lakeside Shopping Centre where we’ll be giving collectors the chance to swap ANY UK 50p coin for a brand new Brilliant Uncirculated UK 50p.

Usually, collectors only get the chance to swap their coins for one new coin design at our live swap events, however this time is a bit different…

We’re pitting two extremely popular 50p series against each other and giving you the choice of either a Star Wars™ OR Harry Potter 50p!

Our Brilliant Uncirculated UK 50ps usually retail for £5.99, so this is a chance to get your hands on one in superior collector quality for just face value!

We’ll be taking 1,000 50ps with us to swap on the day – half made from a mix of Star Wars™ 50ps and the other half a mix of Harry Potter 50ps – but which series will prove most popular?

Which 50p would you chose?

We’ve had quite a debate at Change Checker HQ about which coin series is the best, and we’d love to know what you think! Would you choose a Harry Potter 50p or a Star Wars™ 50p?

Make sure to cast your vote below to settle the argument once and for all!
