2016 Star Wars Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi 1/4oz Gold
After its release in 1977, Star Wars captured the head and minds of a generation around the world.
Obi-Wan Kenobi was once a noble Jedi Knight in the days of the Old Republic before the Jedi Order was extinguished and before the tyrannical Empire ruled the galaxy. After the fall of the Jedi, Obi-Wan retreated to the isolated Jundland Wastes on the desert planet Tatooine. Many locals dismissed the old hermit as a crazy wizard and never suspected that he was a once-great warrior and former general of the Republic. In actuality, Kenobi was silently observing from afar the young farmboy Luke Skywalker, whose future was unknowingly linked to the survival of the Jedi and the Rebellion. When Obi-Wan saves Luke from a band of Tusken Raiders, he begins to mentor young Skywalker in the ways of the Force, and together with Captain Han Solo, his co-pilot Chewbacca and the two Droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, they set out to rescue the Rebel leader Princess Leia from the Empire’s dreaded Death Star. While aboard the Imperial stronghold, Obi-Wan faces his old apprentice Darth Vader, now a Dark Lord of the Sith. A noble example of conviction and self-sacrifice, Obi-Wan allows himself to fall at the hands of Vader so that Luke can escape to the Rebellion and ensure the viability of its future.
