“Wanted By Jabba” Coin From Celebration Europe II

This coin was given out at 2013’s Celebration Europe II to people who completed a sort of digital scavenger hunt. Clues were given via the official Celebration Europe smartphone app. It’s about the size of a silver dollar and is made of metal.

As the event was held in Germany, there was no chance that I would actually attend, so I had to play the waiting game and hope that I would be able to find the coin later. I asked around the Rebelscum forums to no effect, but one did eventually pop up on eBay. Unfortunately, it had an opening bid of $190 and a Buy-it-Now of $290… Needless to say, I passed, and that one is still up on eBay as of this writing. Luckily, another one did come up for auction, and I got it for their reserve price of $20. That’s only two of these coins (that I know of) that have appeared on eBay in over a year, so it is relatively hard to find. But this goes to show that unless something is truly rare or one-of-a-kind, it pays be patient. Of course, the other side of the coin (so to speak) is that in some cases you pass on things and end up never finding them again. Still, $200-$300 for this is just outrageous.
