Luke Stormtrooper Preliminary Coin Art
How about this one! You've no doubt noticed that the illustration of Mark Hamill's head that's used on this Luke Stormtrooper coin sketch resembles not the young Hamill who is seen in the original Star Wars film, but the older, weirder looking Hamill of Return of the Jedi. As if to signify that changes were needed, a giant X is drawn through the head. The production coin features a very similar character image in terms of pose, but a totally different looking head. The text on the lower rim was also changed to read Rebel Leader.

The released version of this coin can be seen here.
