To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first incarnation of the incredibly popular Star Trek series, The Perth Mint has released this official limited edition collectable in pure silver featuring mirror Spock and prime Spock as they appeared in Mirror, Mirror, one of Star Trek’s most iconic episodes.
The acclaimed episode aired for the first time in 1967 during the second season of Star Trek: The Original Series. The episode uses the evil counterparts of some of Star Trek’s most beloved characters, to explore the darker side of humanity and the premise that everyone has two sides to their personality, but peace and harmony are the only way we can survive and prosper.
In Mirror, Mirror, a classic episode of Star Trek first seen in 1967, Captain James T. Kirk and three fellow officers are thrown into an alternative universe in which Spock has become a ruthless and malevolent character who wears an intimidating goatee beard. Picture courtesy of CBS Studios Inc.
