Fans of Star Wars are more than familiar with the storyline of the franchise. In the original film you meet the main protagonists in the film, and follow the story of Luke Skywalker as he is thrust into the battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire. Skywalker is brought in by Obi-Wan Kenobi, and eventually is part of a team of unlikely allies trying to save Princess Leia from the Empire.
On the obverse of each Star Wars 40th Anniversary Coin you’ll find the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy is featured on the obverse of all British and commonwealth coins, with this particular image from Ian Rank-Broadley created in 1998 as the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen.
