One of the most popular characters from the original Star Wars trilogy of films was Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi. Kenobi’s character appeared first in the original trilogy as an older version of himself, portrayed by actor Alec Guinness as one of the few remaining Jedi in the universe, and famously had a show down early on with Darth Vader.
Fast forward to the late 1990s when the prequel trilogy of Star Wars films came out, and the world was introduced to a younger Ben Kenobi who was himself a young Jedi teaching an even younger Anakin Skywalker, who would go on to become Darth Vader. The younger Obi-Wan was portrayed by actor Ewan McGregor.
The reverse of all 2017 ¼ oz Gold Niue Star Wars Obi Wan Kenobi Coins features the image of Obi-Wan in his Jedi robes as he draws his lightsaber to face Darth Vader on the Death Star. This is one of the iconic moments from the first film, Star Wars: A New Hope.
On the obverse of the Star Wars Gold Classic Collection coins you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of the Queen has appeared on the obverse of all commonwealth coins since Ian Rank-Broadley designed it in 1998 as the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty.
Each 2017 ¼ oz Gold Niue Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Coin in this listing arrives inside of a Star Wars-themed black coin case, which itself is shipped inside of a Star Wars-branded outer coin packaging that includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
