The New Zealand Mint offers arguably the most robust Star Wars-themed collection of bullion coins in the world. With the debut of a new trilogy of Star Wars films in 2015, the mint began releasing silver and gold bullion coins with images of the main characters from the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the new sequel trilogy. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2017 Niue Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi 1/4 oz Gold Coins at Provident Metals.
Obi-Wan Kenobi played a minor role in the original trilogy of Star Wars films. He only appeared on-screen through the first half of the first film in the series, Star Wars: A New Hope. Though his history was deeply entrenched in the story of the galaxy, he emerged in his old age to help bring a new generation of Jedi to the forefront. He supported Luke Skywalker and helped him harness the power of the force.
On the obverse side of 2017 Niue Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi 1/4 oz Gold Coins bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this right-profile portrait from Ian Rank-Broadley, the Queen wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head. The tiara was purchased from the Crown Jewelers Garrard in 1893 and gifted to Mary of Teck, the future Queen Mary, upon her marriage to King George V.
The reverse face of 2017 Niue Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi 1/4 oz Gold Coins comes with an image of Obi-Wan as he confronts Darth Vader in the first film. With his Jedi cloak on and hood over his head, Obi-Wan raises his lightsaber as he prepares to confront his former apprentice.
The original Star Wars trilogy was released between the late 1970s and early 1980s. Considered one of the greatest film trilogies, the franchise suffered a setback in the minds of many with the prequel release in the late 1990s and early 2000s as the history of the galaxy before the original trilogy setting unfolded. 2015 marked the release of a sequel trilogy that showcased a galaxy after the fall of the Emperor and Darth Vader; one in which new evil was rising.
2017 Niue Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi 1/4 oz Gold Coins come with a protective capsule, wooden presentation case, and a themed black shipper. The coins all come with an individual Certificate of Authenticity as well.
