In the prequel trilogy ofStar Warsfilms, George Lucas set out to tell the story of Anakin Skywalker’s journey to becoming the evil Darth Vader, and the tragic destruction of his friendships that resulted: especially in his bond with his former master and comrade-at-arms Obi-Wan Kenobi, who trained and fought beside him as a Jedi Knight. The climax of the trilogy comes when the former brothers finally turn against each other with lightsabers in hand, igniting one of the most famous duels ever committed to film. The New Zealand Mint pays tribute to this iconic scene with the 2022 Colorized Niue Star Wars Battle Scene Anakin vs Obi-Wan 3 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Colorized Niue Star Wars Battle Scene Anakin vs Obi-Wan Silver Coin celebrates the most epic duel in theStar Warscanon in three full ounces of pure silver. Each piece comes fully insured by the team at Provident Metals, shipping in an officially-branded coin case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse side features an effigy of Elizabeth II to confirm the coin as legal tender. She’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side of this coin features the duel and the major characters whose actions set the stage for it. Anakin and Obi-Wan are sculpted in pure silver with a frosted finish in the foreground, clashing with lightsabers against a vivid, colorized landscape of the volcano planet Mustafar. Facial portraits of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padme Amidala, and Emperor Palpatine complete the design against a mirror-finish backdrop.
One of the most recognizable symbols of theStar Warsuniverse, since it made its debut in 1977, has been the lightsaber: an iconic hybrid between a laser and a sword that was the signature weapon of the Jedi Knights and their evil opponents who serve the Dark Side of the Force. The first lightsaber duel, featuring Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi and David Prouse as Darth Vader, was a fairly simple and low-key affair compared to the epic showcases of fight choreography and high-stakes drama that would become key to many later films. But it set in motion a tradition that would eventually produce the most ambitious sword battle ever filmed, Anakin and Obi-Wan’s confrontation inStar Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
