This uniquely shaped and highly detailed $20 fine silver coin doubles as both a low mintage collectable and a spectacular rendition of the space station from Star Trek Star Trek: Deep Space NineTM.  Based on the popular TV series that first appeared 25 years ago in 1993 and ran through to 1999, Trekkies will find this rendition of the Deep Space Nine space station to be both familiar and novel at the same time.  Struck in pure silver with a mintage of just 4,500, this is also the lowest mintage of any similar size Star Trek coins ever issued. The coin is dated 2018 and weighs about one ounce of pure silver.  HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Within the coin’s uniquely shaped contour, the reverse design features a highly detailed, engraved rendering of the space station from Star Trek: Deep Space NineTM. Officially classified by Starfleet as a “hybrid planar-columnar tri-radial structure,” Deep Space 9’s shape is defined in part by an outer docking ring that lines the coin’s edge, which is punctuated by 12 docking ports and a series of thrusters. Another defining feature, the towering docking pylons extend towards an inner habitat ring, which is linked to a spherical-shaped central core. The station’s placement allows for a largely unobstructed view of the full-colour image that fills the field, where the Bajoran wormhole (top left) adds a bright swirl of colour to the snapshot of the Bajoran system. A different view of the series’ galactic locale is featured on the obverse, where a fine colour outline augments the engraved legend. The space station is also engraved on the obverse, where it frames the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
