The brightest Star Trek commemorative coin program in the universe now has two new spectacular coloured additions to mark the sci-fi classic’s 50th anniversary.
The first coin features portraits of actors William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in their definitive roles as Kirk and Spock in Star Trek: The Original Series, which debuted on U.S. television on 8 September 1966. Holding a communicator and tricorder – quintessential Star Trek gadgetry – they appear on a dramatic backdrop of stars, planets and 23rd century space craft technology.
Its companion release depicts the illustrious U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, arguably the most celebrated space-exploration vessel in the history of sci-fi. Famous for its unique capabilities and equipment, including warp-drive, deflector shield and transporter to ‘dematerialise’ human passengers before beaming them to a new location in space, the cherished craft was integral to every episode.
Extremely Limited Collectables
No more than 1,500 2016 1oz Silver Proof Two-Coin Sets will be released in ‘transporter’ packaging featuring a ring of iridescent blue light around each coin.
