2018 Niue 1 Dollar 5 Gram Silver Foil Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi PMG 70 Colorized Proof-Like Note
Honoring a Key Figure of the Star Wars Franchise
When Star Wars debuted in 1977 with what would come to be called Episode IV: A New Hope, the film took the entertainment industry by storm. Fans loved the clear contrast between good and evil, and they saw the importance of passing values and skills on from one generation to the next. Obi-Wan Kenobi did this for two of the most important characters in the entire series, first (but second in terms of releases) training Anakin Skywalker and later serving as a mentor to Luke. Wise and skillful, he trained the young Luke in the ways of the Force. Now, the New Zealand Mint celebrates the iconic character with this 2018 Niue five gram Silver Proof-like Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi.
- SECOND ISSUE IN THE "STAR WARS CLASSIC" SERIES -- This 2018 Niue Silver Proof-like Obi-Wan Kenobi Foil Note is the eleventh coin in the Star Wars: A New Hope collection, which features some of the most memorable characters in the series.
- STUNNING PROOF-LIKE FINISH – Each 2018 Silver Obi-Wan Kenobi Foil Note was struck from five grams of 99.9% fine silver at the New Zealand Mint and has a stunning proof-like finish.
- PARTLY COLORIZED – The reverse of the note features two images of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a colorized one of him wielding his light saber on the left and a silver one of him facing off against Darth Vader on the right.
- NIUE LEGAL TENDER -- Each 2018 Silver Obi-Wan Kenobi Foil Note is one dollar legal tender in Niue, as noted on the upper left of the obverse, which also bears Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley. Niue is a small island nation in the South Pacific that is known for the abundant sea life in the reef around it as well as its striking limestone cliffs.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE – This release is part of a mintage of just 50,000 pieces, meaning that most fans of the iconic character will miss out.
For all the franchise’s countless successes, just one actor thus far has received an Academy Award nomination for his work in it. That actor is Alec Guinness, who portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was the mentor that moviegoers had, wished they had, or aspired to be. His guidance and education were emblematic of everything that a mentor is supposed to be, and he earned his nomination by having that come across to each and every viewer. Whether you are a mentor or have had one, or you simply love all things Star Wars, order this Proof-like 2018 five gram Silver Obi-Wan Kenobi Foil Note at GovMint.com today!
