This 2018 glow in the dark $10 coin pays tribute to Star Trek – The Next Generation. Whether exploring new worlds or encountering unusual phenomena, Star Trek’s iconic starships have transported millions of imaginations deep into “the final frontier”. This fine silver coin is a collectible tribute to one of the most famous vessels in Starfleet history: U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994).
The coin weighs just over half an ounce of pure silver, and has a limited mintage of 10,000. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.
A sci-fi and pop culture icon, U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D is brought to life by a vibrant colour application on the reverse. The Galaxy-class vessel is set against a glow-in-the-dark green nebula, which adds a dynamic sense of movement and energy to the deep space setting. A frontal view allows for the study of the underside of the ship’s saucer and the stardrive section, whose navigational deflector is easily identified by the red concentric circles. This feature is also incorporated twice in the engraved frame that surrounds the colour image and bears the engraved words “STAR TREK” and “CANADA” in a Star Trek font. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
