Direct Coins is excited to offer the first striking 5g pure silver coin note in the Star Trek Original Series Collection which features images of Captain Kirk and U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.
A Star Trek Original Series Collector's Album is included with this purchase!
Inside a protective cover, this hardcover album includes a page for each of the seven coin notes in the collection. Future releases will feature Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov. The album is Star Trek themed, with each page designed to complement the corresponding note - including a biography of each character.
James Tiberius Kirk was born on 22 March 2233 in Riverside, Iowa, Earth. In 2264 he was promoted to captain, in command of U.S.S. Enterprise for a five-year mission. He was the youngest captain in Starfleet at that time and the first captain to bring his starship back relatively intact after a five-year mission. Kirk's historically rapid rise to a captaincy and command of a loyal and respectful crew are reflected in the awards and commendations he garnered.
The design is brought to life through the use of engraving and colour printing. The unique number in the mintage is also printed on each coin note. The obverse of the note features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and is legal tender in Niue.
