I was sending across an article for the 'Chive Cast about the Aussie Commonwealth banks, and found some interesting history HERE that includes the Darth Vader version. Like a lot of companies back then, they wanted to latch onto the Star Wars fever of the day to promote their product to kids - in this case young savers.


Thanks to AJ who helped me out with the pics of these cool pieces!

The first 3 are the Star Wars era (a new hope release) the second Vader head is from ROTJ.

With patience they can be picked up quite cheaply
