The third release in the Star Trek: The Next Generation Silver Coin Note Collection features the infamous season 3 finale, “The Best of Both Worlds, Pt. I”.
"The Best of Both Worlds, Pt. I" is considered to be a game changing episode in the Star Trek universe, being the first episode to end with a cliff-hanger in the entire history of the franchise.
The episode sees the U.S.S. Enterprise crew investigating a series of disappearances, of which they suspect the involvement of the powerful Borg. Captain Picard is taken captive and when the crew’s efforts to reach the captain prove futile, they abandon their pursuit and instead consider taking a shot at the Borg’s ship. The episode ends with Commander Riker commanding, “Mr Worf, Fire!”
This appealing note, made from 5g of pure silver, is a coloured and engraved replica of the episode poster artwork by renowned artist, Juan Ortiz. The note is printed with its unique number in the mintage and is presented in a protective sleeve which includes details of the note’s authenticity.
The obverse of the note features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue.
“The Best of Both Worlds, Pt. I” is one of the seven unique silver coin notes that make up the collection, which includes iconic episodes from each of the other seven seasons. Each note has a dedicated page in the Star Trek: The Next Generation Collector’s Album, which comes with the purchase of the “Encounter At Farpoint, Pt. I” Silver Coin Note.
