This 2016 $10 selective colour coin celebrates the 50th anniversary of the television series Star TrekTM.  The coin features Communications Officer Nyota Uhura of the U.S.S. Enterprise, (played by actress Nichelle Nichols).  The mintage is just 12,500, and weighs just over one half ounce of pure silver. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt. 

The Design:

The coin features UHURA, wearing her red coloured uniform of Starfleet’s U.S.S. Enterprise.  To the left is a colour portrait of Uhura, holding a tricorder; a scientific device designed for data sensing and analysis. To the right of the communications officer is an engraved depiction of the tricorder, allowing the viewer to get a close glimpse of its control buttons, compartments and the shoulder strap.  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, communicators, tablet computers, phaser to teleporters, Star Trek has given us a look into what space travel could entail in the 23rd century.
