The folks at Chewbacca 5.2 Facebook page have decided to produce a 1.75" Challenge Coin honoring the late Carrie Fisher. The proceeds of this run will go to the National Alliance on Mental Illness aka NAMI. The coin will feature Carrie Fisher in her The Force Awakens General Leia gear on the front and the back will feature her beloved dog Gary and the saying "A Princess's best friend." The cost of the coin will be $10 shipped in the US and $12 shipped for international buyers. The sale will be open until January 20th or until they reach 300 coins, whichever comes first.
Make sure to keep to visit the Facebook page for Chewbacca 5.2 for more details and keep track of when the official close will be.
Below is the release from their FB page.
