The year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s science-fiction phenomenon, Star Trek: The Original Series which debuted in 1966, and is now experiencing a reincarnation with the release of several new blockbuster films. Set in the future, the science fiction series followed the 23rd century adventures of Captain James Tiberius Kirk and the Constitution-class starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.
Fifty years on, the series has developed into a cultural sensation with a range of spinoff television series and a number of feature films. To celebrate the first incarnation of this incredibly popular series, The Perth Mint has released a number of exciting limited edition collectable coins.
