Description

This 2017 $30 fine silver coin celebrates Star TrekTM with a unique glow in the dark effect that brings together these five legendary captains, who repeatedly rose to the challenges that come with boldly going Òwhere no man has gone before.Ó Picard, Janeway, Archer, Sisko, and Kirk, to the millions of Canadian fans, these five Star TrekTM captains represented humanity at its best. Through their actions, each of these leaders taught us about trust and loyalty, integrity and compassion, and above all, dedication. Mintage is limited to 5,000 coins. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The reverse design features a rich colour application over the engraved portraits of the five captains of the Star TrekTM television series. From left to right, thereÕs Benjamin Sisko (played by Avery Brooks) of Star TrekTM: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999); Jonathan Archer (portrayed by Scott Bakula) of the most recent series, Star TrekTM: Enterprise (2001-2005); James T. Kirk (Canadian actor William Shatner) from Star TrekTM: The Original Series (1966-1969); Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) from Star TrekTM: The Next Generation (1987-1994); and Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) of Star TrekTM: Voyager (1995-2001). The portraits are positioned around an engraved Delta Shield Insignia and against a space background; they gently overlap the outer band in which the words ÒCANADAÓ, ÒSTAR TREKÓ and the year Ò2017Ó are engraved.

When viewed in the dark, glow in the dark elements reveal a second image on the reverse; a head-on view of U.S.S. Enterprise in flight. Between the EnterpriseÕs phaser beams lies an illuminated Delta Shield Insignia, which became the identifying emblem of Starfleet; it bears the five-point star that is indicative of a command rank.
