Description

2015 Star Trek Enterprise & Captain Kirk

Probably the most sought after Star Trek coin set around, the debut release by the Perth Mint sees the iconic pairing of Captain Kirk and the USS Enterprise on a pair of one-ounce proof silver coins. Just 1,500 sets were made available in the blue-LED lit transporter packaging. Five series got their own sets, but this Original Series issue is the hot one.

Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek debuted in 1966, and ran for three seasons until 1969. 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 , a powerful interstellar spacecraft dispatched by the Earth-based Starfleet Command to explore the galaxy.

Reverse

KIRK:  portrays a colour image of actor William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk as he appeared in Star Trek, against a representation of the U.S.S.Enterprise and the inscription CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness.

ENTERPRISE:  is representative of the United Federation of Planets logo and portrays a colour image of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 flying through space as it appeared in the original Star Trek television series. The design includes the inscription STAR TREK THE ORIGINAL SERIES U.S.S. ENTERPRISE NCC-1701, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness.

Obverse

depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date.

Packaging

When these coins are purchased individually, the coins are presented in a Star Trek inspired case. The two-coin set is packaged in a case designed to look like a Star Trek Transporter. The Captain Kirk coin sits inside and when the ‘door’ of the Transporter is opened, a light comes on so that the Captain appears to be teleporting. The Enterprise coin sits on top of the case in its own compartment which also lights up. Each coin and set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
