With 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' making its debut just a short while ago, many fans of the franchise eagerly took to the Internet to score some of the merchandise, collectibles, and other exclusive items that coincided with its release, including the Star Wars money that was printed by De La Rue.

In order to reflect the themes that are presented in the film, the banknotes have both a "light and a dark side."
