PSWCS BB-8 charity medallion

This year for Star Wars Celebration Orlando the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS) will have a BB-8 themed medallion available in their booth #2055. The medallion will be limited to a 1000 pieces and will raise funds to support the No Warrior Without Help, which is a Central PA base non-profit organization that helps to assist wounded veterans as well as train service dogs. The price will be $12 and each coin will come with a certificate of Authenticity. Make sure to stop by their booth early on because these will more than likely sell out.

The limited edition medallion is fully approved by Lucasfilm and has an edition size of 1000 pieces. Each medallion features the likeness of BB-8 on the front, along with the date and the name of the charity, No Warrior without Help. The back features the PSWCS logo.

The medallions will be $12 each and will be accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity and receipt as they are tax deductible.
