When the original Star Wars films were released, there was an immediate craze for the science-fiction films. A loyal following of fans powered the movies to heights few films ever reach. A series of prequels around the turn of the 21st century were met with modest excitement, but a new sequel series arrived in December 2015 with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, generating renewed excitement around the franchise.
Skywalker was introduced in the Star Wars storyline in the first film of the original trilogy as a simple farm boy from the planet of Tatooine. He never knew of his lineage and his potential place in the universe until he crossed paths with Obi Wan-Kenobi, and set forth on the adventure of a life time to save the universe from the dark side of the Force.
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Luke Skywalker Coin bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was designed in 1998 by Sir Ian Rank-Broadley, and captures Her Majesty in a fourth-generation depiction.
On the reverse of each of these silver coins in the Star Wars classic collection is the image of Skywalker. He is depicted standing beside his X-34 landspeeder on his home planet of Tatooine in an image taken from Star Wars: A New Hope.
Each of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Star Wars Luke Skywalker Coins in this offering is available inside of black coin case with Star Wars themed design, and ships inside of a themed shipper box as well. Each coin comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity as well.
