Real World Star Trek CurrencyFebruary 10th, 2015
With access to electronic payments everywhere you go these days, coins are for chumps. But just because you don’t want to carry a bunch of jangly change around in your pockets doesn’t mean you won’t want these collectible Star Trek coins.
While they are actually valid currency on the Polynesian island nation of Tuvalu, the Star Trek silver dollar coins are much better suited to a display case, than trying to spend them on a Slurpee. Besides, what’s the last time you went to Tuvalu? In fact, I’ve never heard of the place. Is that where Tuvok comes from?
Best of all, you can pick up these limited-edition Star Trek coins with no need to beam down to the surface of Tuvalu. Just head over to the Perth Mint of Australia and place your order online starting on February 16th. Each coin will sell for $115 Australian dollars, or $230 for the set of two.
