Millennium Falcon USN challenge coin


whilst looking for Millennium Falcon collectibles related to coins, I found this rather interesting “coin” on eBay. It’s a United States Navy challenge coin from a Pacific fleet excessive, by the looks of it.

It’s a really nice piece. I’m not sure why they call it a coin as it’s about 5″ by 4″. It’s made from metal, so it has a really nice weight to it. As you can see from the photo above, it’s superbly detailed and someone’s clearly taken a lot of time to make this.

I did try to get some further information from the seller, but they weren’t able to give me anything of value. I’ll have to try and see what I can find out on the internet.

The seller still has two available here.

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
