This year, the Peter Mayhew coin to benefit the Peter Mayhew Foundation is a beautiful gold coin, featuring the great man on one side, the Millennium Falcon racing away on the other and around the edge a nod to 50 years of Lucasfilm as it lists the companies projects over the last half century.

This year the Peter Mayhew Foundation has had to find ways to innovate in a constantly changing world. Before the pandemic we worked very closely with the 501st and Rebel legion to deliver toys to children’s hospitals, we had local teams of volunteers that could help with disaster relief, we were able to do outreach at comic conventions and assist with other non-profit efforts. In the face of those doors closing, we’ve shifted to shipping toys directly to hospitals and building the infrastructure to do as much good as possible now that the world is starting to open back up.
With all that in mind, our new coin has an image of Peter in the cockpit and highlights our toy deliveries that have been the temporary solution to in-person hospital visits. The artwork for the coin was created by Kate Dehay, Peter’s daughter. It is also a very special year for our friends and family over at Lucasfilm. So, in honor of 50 years of Lucasfilm imagination, we’ve created a special edge text on the coin to tell the LFL story from their humble beginnings all the way to the present.
