Alas! Peter Mayhew Passed Away
RIP. Our favorite Chewbacca from Star Wars, the English-American actor, Peter Mayhew took his last breath on April 30, 2019. Mayhew died of a heart attack at his home in Boyd, Texas at age 74. Peter is world famous for portraying Chewbacca in the Star Wars film series. He, in fact, played the iconic character in all of his live-action sequels. Right from the 1977 original to 2015’s The Force Awakens.

Richard Gonzalez artistically crafted the coin in spectacular design. The coin possesses exclusive artwork by Peter’s daughter Katy Dehay. Katy, however, was pretty confused to select the best image of her father among those hundreds of available photographs. Finally, she picked the one from Comic Convention appearances from Star Wars movie releases representing peter in his best mode.
Furthermore, Mayhew’s family gravely supervised each and every step of coin designing. You can also notice the quote scribed at the edge of each 2-inch coin which reads: “If I see further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”.
Limited Edition Coins
A $20 donation at the Peter Mayhew Foundation will receive one challenge Bronze Face Coin. However, every $100 donation made to the foundation will receive 4 standard antique bronze coins. In addition, as a bonus, the donor can replace one bronze coin with a limited silver brush painted coin. Shipping for this memorial coin will Begin On July 15th.
