Luke Skywalker (X-wing) [wireframe Yoda, prototype small coin]
This was the very first coin developed for the POTF line, and this version is rare variant with Yoda in wireframe form on the back. At the time, Kenner was experimenting with the design and size of their new coin premiums and they developed this coin for Luke. It's about 3/4 the size of the standard POTF coins, but it was designed and minted just like them. The back of the coin has Yoda's image in outline form and some information about the Jedi Knights. After its development, Kenner decided on going to the larger diameter for their coins. No other coin this size was created by Kenner. This coin was never released to the public and has only surfaced through past Kenner employees. There are an estimated 400 of these coins in existence. The coin back reads as follows: Guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy for over a thousand years, the Jedi Knights are now all but extinct. They gained their power through knowledge of The Force.
