Additional Information

This is the Signed Limited Edition copy of the book. Signed by both writers as well as the Editor. In 1984, with strong competition from other boys' toys and no new Star Wars film on the horizon, Kenner released Collector's Coins to include with each action figure sold, in a last-ditch attempt to inject excitement into a waning toy-line. Although unsuccessful at the time, today these coins are admired and coveted by collectors worldwide! Spanning 82 pages, Coining a Galaxy explores the phenomenon of Kenner's Vintage POWER OF THE FORCE, DROIDS & EWOKS Star Wars Collector Coins...from their concept and creation to their circulation and their untimely cancellation! Including a Coin Gallery depicting every known Kenner Star Wars Collector Coin, classified according to rarity, with pre-production and unreleased coins, text outlines and a checklist with price guide! Written by James Gallo and Mark Salotti with Layout by Jeff Correll.

The amount of information in here is impressive. Most importantly, Gallo and Salotti, based on decades of experience, devised an updated classification system that addresses each coin’s relative rarity, expanding on Gus Lopez’s long-standing category system. I enjoyed reading the brief back story of the coins, though to be honest I became a little nauseated when I read "...Lucasfilm granted Kenner permission to sell complete sets directly to the public for $24.99." That's now officially on my Time Machine Bucket List. They also provide quality photos of more variations than I previously imagined existed. Because I’m slightly OCD when it comes to my collections, I’m not really sure if that makes me happy or sad. COINING A GALAXY has reignited my passion for completing the set... Read more
Bought this book not knowing much about the POTF coins. I have seen them, but never had any idea of all the work and rarity some of them have. Very informative. Breaks down this facet of collecting. Highly recommended for any Star Wars collector!
