63rd Coin [gold]
This coin was planned as a mail-in offer for the 93-Back Power of the Force cards. Since the Power of the Force line ended with the 92-backs, the coin was never used in an offer. The offer would have allowed collectors to send in proofs of purchase to get a POTF coin album. The inside of the album holds the coins and comes with this 63rd coin, the only gold coin in the POTF coin set. A prototype of this album was constructed that was probably created for product photography. The prototype matches the cover and inside sketches of the album artwork.

Few of these prototypes are known to exist today. Some of them are aluminum colored like many of the Droids coin first shots and Ewoks coin first shots. This one pictured here has the gold tone that was intended for the production coin. You'll notice that the coin is a lighter shade of gold (less yellow) than the Droids series coins.

The front of the coin shows two hands holding a lightsaber as in the Return of the Jedi Style A poster. The back of the coin describes the role of Jedi Knights in the Star Wars galaxy: JEDI KNIGHTS battle the EMPEROR's evil IMPERIAL EMPIRE using THEIR LIGHTSABERS and the magical power of THE FORCE.
