A science fiction classic Star Trek debuted in 1966, pioneering the development of the genre and spawning a successful and enduring franchise, the series followed the 23rd century adventures of Captain James Tiberius Kirk and the crew of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.
Captain Kirk was immortalised by William Shatner in Star Trek: The Original Series and in seven feature films. During a visit to The Perth Mint in 2018, the beloved actor personally envisioned a coin design that depicted Kirk together with the planet Jupiter. Mr Shatner subsequently endorsed this latest Star Trek release, calling it “a lovely design filled with meaning”. Representing a unique connection to the Star Trek series, this 1oz silver coin is sure to appeal to fans around the world.
The coin’s reverse design portrays a coloured representation of Captain Kirk on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 and the Star Trek: The Original Series logo. Visible from the ship’s viewpoint is the planet Jupiter and one of its many moons, a reference to Jupiter’s personal significance to William Shatner.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
