Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek debuted in 1966, and ran for three seasons until 1969.
Set in the future, the science fiction series followed the 23rd century adventures of Captain James Tiberius Kirk and the Constitution-class starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, a powerful interstellar spacecraft dispatched by the Earth-based Starfleet Command to explore the galaxy.
Since its debut, Star Trek has developed into a cultural phenomenon with a range of spinoff television series and a number of feature films being released over the past five decades. The series explored a variety of societal themes and issues including a Utopian society, war and peace, imperialism, economics, racial equality, religion, human rights, feminism, and the role of technology.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu. The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2015 Star Trek – Captain James T. Kirk 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
The Captain James T. Kirk coin’s reverse portrays a colour image of actor William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk as he appeared in Star Trek, against a representation of the U.S.S. Enterprise and the inscription CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin's weight and fineness.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date, are featured on the coin’s obverse.
The coin is presented in a Star Trek inspired case and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
