One of the most iconic symbols of the Star Wars universe is the lightsaber, the signature weapon of the Jedi Knights: as Obi-Wan Kenobi put it when we first met him onscreen 1977, “an elegant weapon from a more civilized age.” Over the decades, the lightsaber duel has developed into one of the signature spectacles of Star Wars shows, movies, and games, developing from the brief encounters of the early days into epic displays of complex fight choreography like those seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. One of the most famous and iconic of these duels is the showdown between Anakin Skywalker and his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi, celebrated by the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 3 oz Colorized Niue Silver Star Wars Battle Scene Anakin vs Obi-Wan Coin.

The movies of the Star Wars prequel trilogy focused on the relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and his student in the Jedi arts, Anakin Skywalker, who would eventually go on to become the dreaded Darth Vader. This remarkable silver collectible showcases the moment when the pair of comrades-in-arms finally break into an open and tragic conflict that will scar them both forever.
