Celebrate and commemorate the 50th anniversary of the television series Star TrekTM with this official Canadian $20 pure silver collector coin featuring the U.S.S. Enterprise, one of the most iconic and recognizable science fiction images of all time. Whether you are a full-fledged Trekkie or just want to reminisce enjoying Star Trek episodes, this coin will transport you back to an era gone by, and at the same time into the future of the Star Trek series. Mintage is just 11,500, with one ounce fine silver. As pure silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, it is HST/GST exempt.
The coin design features the U.S.S. Enterprise in a recreation of a scene from the 1968 episode I, Mudd. The rich colour over the engraved rendering gives it a life-like quality. Shown in three quarter view, it allows the viewer a full glimpse of the saucer like hull, while the twin warp nacelles are visible at the rear. The yellow, gold and red-brown colours of the Class K planet seem vibrant against the dark expanse of space.
