The coin features Captain James Tiberius Kirk, wearing his gold coloured uniform as he commands the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise from his chair on the bridge.  To the right of Captain Kirk is an intricately engraved U.S.S. Enterprise, with its registration number NCC-1701 on the saucer shaped hull and the twin warp nacelles.  Engraved in the background is the Starfleet’s Delta Shield Insignia.


About Star Trek:

Star Trek was a science fictional television series that followed the starship Enterprise and its crew.  The show is set in the milky way galaxy during the 2260’s. The ships purpose was stated in the opening credits.


Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.


From warp drives, translators, tablet computers, phaser to teleporters, Star Trek has given us a look into what space travel could entail in the 23rd century.
