The Royal Mint has a new 'Star Wars' coin featuring the Millennium Falcon

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin.

(SOUNDBITE OF JOHN WILLIAMS' "STAR WARS (MAIN TITLE)")

MARTIN: If you are a fan of "Star Wars" memorabilia, something new is coming to add to your shelf. The Royal Mint has a new coin featuring the Millennium Falcon.

(SOUNDBITE OF MILLENNIUM FALCON FLYING)

MARTIN: It's part of a series started last year to honor the 40th anniversary of the "Return Of The Jedi," featuring iconic ships of the franchise. Later this year, coins will feature the X-Wing, TIE fighter and Death Star II.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE")

ALEC GUINNESS: (As Obi-Wan Kenobi) That's no moon. It's a space station.

MARTIN: No, it's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
