Star Trek was not well received when it first hit American airwaves during the 1960s, but today that is far from the case. With time and greater exposure, the series and its subsequent spinoffs have earned the show the status of cult classic. The 2015 1 oz Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D Proof Silver coin is now available courtesy of JM Bullion.
- Limited mintage of only 5,000 coins!
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Issued a face value of $1.
- Considered legal tender in the nation of Tuvalu.
- Jennifer McKenna designed the reverse image.
The original Star Trek series first aired on American television on the NBC network in 1966. Captain Kirk, played by William Shatner, led the original crew as it fought for intergalactic peace and freedom. When The Next Generation series debuted in 1987, Sir Patrick Stewart played the title role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, guiding his crew on the U.S.S. Enterprise.
That latest version of the Enterprise, as it appeared during all seven seasons of The Next Generation, is featured on the reverse side of this coin. While the ship itself is featured in silver in the center, the background of the galaxy is featured in brilliant black and shades of blue. Engravings include Star Trek, The Next Generation, and U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, as well as the weight, purity, and metal content.
On the obverse side is Ian Rank-Broadleys right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Featured on the obverse of all Perth Mint coins, the image of Her Majesty is surrounded by the engravings Queen Elizabeth II, 1 Dollar Tuvalu, and the year of minting.
The Perth Mint produces all coins for the small island nation of Tuvalu. Although it is not a national mint for Australia, the coins produced for Australia are considered legal tender under a 1970s law in the nation. In addition to producing currency for Tuvalu, the Perth Mint strikes coins for a number of other small Pacific Ocean island nations.
