The menacing Death Trooper features on the third coin in New Zealand Mintís officially licensed Guards of the Empire Silver Coin Collection. The first two releases featured the Stormtrooper and the Clone Trooper - who will be next?

Death Troopers were elite Stormtroopers in the Galactic Empire's military, designed for stealth, espionage and lethality. Stormtrooper candidates who excelled at their training were reassigned to the advanced Death Trooper camp. Operating under Imperial Intelligence, they served as protective details and bodyguards for significant Imperial officers, such as Director Krennic in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as well as special-assignment commandos. They were recognisable by their unique,dark body armor and used specialized helmets with vocal scramblers.

This unusual, rectangular 1oz pure silver coin has an antique finish which adds to the menacing feel. It shows a coloured Death Trooper in his specialized armour with its dark, ominous gleam. The engraved background shows two Death Troopers in action at The Battle of Scarif.

The coin is packaged in a Star Wars branded box and kept safe inside a magnetised acrylic holder, which still allows easy access. A Certificate of Authenticity is included which confirms it as pure silver and contains its unique number in the limited 2,000-coin mintage. Be ruthless and order your Death Trooper today!
