We’ve seen a number of cool, out-of-this-world things throughout the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland, but this find really takes the Batuu-bon cake. Presenting the Galaxy’s Edge “Batuuan Spira” gift card:
It comes in this fancy sueded case with the Black Spire logo and a geometric tab.to keep your gift card safe.
Except it actually isn’t a gift card. It’s a credit medallion.
The hexagonal coin features a Black Spire logo and the words in “BSO” (for Black Spire Outpost) and “Spira” in Aurebesh. The weathered antique gold coin looks like it’s been traded around the galaxy and back, but now it can be yours by just loading it with a balance of $100 in gift card credit.
The back of the weathered suede case tells of the Batuuan Spira, the ancient currency of Black Spire Outpost.
The back of each coin has a scannable barcode that merchants at each store scan to deduct from your balance. It’s funny that they worked in all of the boilerplate onto the top half of the gift coin as well.
The bottom of the coin features the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge logo.
Given that you’re bound to spend at least $100 in the land between food, beverage, and merchandise, this is a must-have item for anyone looking to add even more immersion to their experience in Batuu. The gift card can also be used at other Disney destinations in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico. We found it at the registers inside of Droid Depot.
Will you be picking one up and going on a Black Spire shopping spree? (We sure did.)
