Star Trek debuted on American television in 1966 with what has become known as The Original Series. Although the series only lasted three years, it would eventually spawn a number of other television and feature film adventures, boldly taking viewers where no man had gone before.
In total, following the end of The Original Series‘ run on television, Star Trek gained a cult following with an animated series followed by a handful of feature films in the 1970s and 1980s. It wasn’t until the late 1980s and 1990s that Star Trek started to invade television sets again. Between 1985 and 2005, a total of four new series debuted on TV. In recent years, a reboot of the franchise has occurred with the release of new feature films.
These 2016 1 oz Star Trek USS Enterprise NCC 1701 Silver coins feature the image of the iconic starship from the starfleet. Captains, including James T. Kirk, sat at the helm of this beloved starfleet leading ship throughout the course of numerous installments of the series.
On the reverse side of the coin you’ll find the image of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 in flight, along with engravings of its name and the mint mark. The obverse of the 2016 1 oz Star Trek USS Enterprise NCC 1701 Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s image was crafted in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, and it represents the fourth-generation image of the Queen on commonwealth coinage.
These coins are the product of the Perth Mint. Located in Perth, Western Australia, the mint is the nation’s oldest operating mint facility and was once part of the British Royal Mint system. It remained under British control until 1970, but is now a state-owned entity of Western Australia and is not associated with the Royal Australian Mint.
