The Perth Mint is celebrating 50 years of Star Trek.
Since its debut, Star Trek has developed into a cultural phenomenon with a range of spinoff television series and a number of feature films being released over the past five decades. The Star Trek Delta Shield insignia is one of the most familiar and well-recognised symbols of the hit series. Over time the design has evolved, however it has maintained its distinctive, slightly asymmetrical, arrowhead-shape throughout.
The Delta Shield was originally gold with a black border and was used as the identifying mark on ships, and on the uniforms of Starfleet crew. Worn on the left breast of the uniform by all Starfleet personnel, the shape and internal symbol differed based on the ship or base to which the person was assigned, and also indicated the wearer's branch. A star with an elongated top point indicated command. In The Original Series this was a patch, but later became Starfleet's first combadge.
