The second imposing 5g pure silver coin note in the Star Wars: A New Hope Collection features Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi with his Lightsaber and in battle with Darth Vader.
After the Jedi Order is all but eradicated, Obi-Wan hides on Tatooine, watching over Luke Skywalker and waiting to teach him the ways of The Force. Finally, fate intervenes and together they set out to deliver the Death Star plans.
En route, Obi-Wan begins instructing Luke in the ways of The Force and Lightsaber combat, but the group is forced to board the Death Star. There the Jedi Master encounters Darth Vader, his former student turned Sith. They duel, and Obi-Wan willingly accepts his death so that Luke and his allies can escape.
Coloured and engraved with the movie's logo and character images, each note contains its unique number in the mintage and is presented in a protective sleeve which includes details of the note's authenticity. The note's obverse has the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on it and is legal tender in Niue.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the six unique silver coin notes that make up the collection which also includes Luke Skywalker, Han Solo & Chewbacca, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader, and R2-D2 & C-3PO.
