PSWCS Charity Fundraiser for Operation Ward 57

The fine folks of the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society are raising money for Operation Ward 57 through a limited edition coin. Press release and coin pictures below.
The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is selling a limited
edition medallion as a fundraiser to support Operation Ward 57. The
medallion features Obi-Wan Kenobi, the heroic Jedi Master from Star
Wars - The Clone Wars. The medallions were produced in a one-time run
of 1000 pieces with the permission of Lucasfilm Ltd. The cost is $10
per medallion, with a limit of 3 medallions per household. 100% of the
proceeds generated through the sale of these medallions will be
donated to Operation Ward 57.

Operation Ward 57 is a charitable organization that collects donations
to benefit the veterans in the orthopedic Ward 57 at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center. Ward 57 cares for some of the most severely injured
military veterans who return from operations overseas. Operation Ward
57 purchases comfort and support items to help these veterans and
their families through difficult and trying times. To learn more
