Perfect for fans of the long-running sci-fi television show Star Trek, this silver coin celebrates the success of its latest series, Star Trek: Discovery. Star Trek’s sixth live-action series was released in 2017 with single serialised storylines rather than the previous series’ weekly destination-based format. Discovery is set about 10 years before Star Trek: The Original Series but is distinctly modern in its depiction of the human condition and representation of characters from diverse backgrounds.
Celebrating the Discovery Crew
Most prominent on the coin’s reverse design is First Officer Michael Burnham, the protagonist of Star Trek: Discovery and a woman who takes a traditionally male name. Further reflecting the diversity of the crew are, clockwise to the right of Burnham, Sylvia Tilly, a cadet who works under Chief Engineer Paul Stamets and a roommate of Burnham; Voq/Ash Tyler, a Klingon who undergoes surgery to pose as a human; Stamets, who is the first openly gay character in a Star Trek series; Captain Gabriel Lorca; and First Officer Saru, the first of the Kelpien species to enter Starfleet service.
Also included in the design is a depiction of the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, the Star Trek: Discovery icon, and a representation of a nebulous galaxy background.
Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate
Packaged in a Star Trek styled case which lights up when the lid is opened, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
