The passing of Peter Mayhew hit the fandom hard, and by way of honouring his legacy the Peter Mayhew Foundation have created this magnificent Memorial Coin with 100% of the profits going to the Foundation which helps a plethora of causes.
Peter Mayhew passed away on April 30th, 2019. The Peter Mayhew Foundation was Peter’s passion for helping others in the form of a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that helped alleviate suffering in all its forms. From helping families struggling to receive a life saving transplant, to aiding animal rescues with the funds needed to care for abandoned animals and make them ready for adoption. Angie Mayhew, Peter’s wife, now takes up the mantle of Executive Director of the Foundation and will continue to deliver on Peter’s moral imperative to help those in need.
As a Commemorative Memorial Challenge Coin we have produced an individually numbered coin with artwork by Peter’s daughter Katy DeHay, and coin design by Richard Gonzalez. Katy went through hundreds of photos of Peter, from comic convention appearances to Star Wars movie releases to build a portrait of Peter that represented her father at his best. Each step of the coin’s design process was supervised and approved by the Mayhew family, and everyone had input on the final artwork and coin design.
Along the edge of the coin is a quote “If I See Further It Is By Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants” and each coin is 2″ in diameter.
Limited Edition Variant Coin
For every $20 donation made to the Peter Mayhew Foundation you will receive one (1) challenge coin made with an antique bronze face. These coins will be individually numbered with an edition size of 5,000 across all variants. For every $100 donation made to the Peter Mayhew Foundation, you will receive four (4) of the standard antique bronze coins and as a bonus one (1) bronze coin will be replaced with a limited coin with a brushed silver face.
