The coin was allegedly found on the desert planet Tatooine among the ruins of Mos Eisley inside a ruined structure that appears to have been a cantina. Also inside was found the skeletal remains of a humanoid who scientists have named “Greedo” and appears to have been shot first, perhaps by a smuggler or some other scoundrel.

The obverse of the coin is a portrait of a helmeted head facing. Archeologists have named him “Darth Vader”, who at one time may have been a ruler or a “Lord” of some kind.

The reverse has the words “STAR WARS”, with the moneyer's mark below, which appears to be some sort of advertisement or propaganda and might suggest that the people of this particular “Empire” were a war like society...
