The first Vulcan to attend Starfleet Academy, Spock is regarded as the finest officer in the fleet.
His father is a Vulcan ambassador, his mother a school teacher from earth. Spock’s Vulcan nature is constantly at war with his human side. Because he was never able to fit in on either Vulcan or Earth, Spock considers Starfleet his true home. He is intensely loyal to Captain Kirk.
The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to celebrate 50 Years of Star Trek with this unique Stamp and Coin Cover. Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The coin’s reverse portrays a colour image of the actor Leonard Nimoy (1931 – 2015) giving the Vulcan salute as Spock as he appeared in Star Trek, against a representation of the IDIC Vulcan symbol and the inscription SPOCK. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year-date, and the monetary denomination are depicted on each coin’s obverse.
Affixed to each envelope is an official Australia Post $1.00 stamp. Each stamp is postmarked for the first day of issue and the envelope includes Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity.
