Star Trek 50th Anniversary Canadian CoinsJune 21st, 2016
The Royal Canadian Mint loves to make legal currency coins based on popular culture, so it’s definitely not going to miss celebrating the original Star Trek TV series’ 50th anniversary. The mint made several Star Trek coins, including a $200 (CAD) coin shaped like the Starfleet insignia. That one promptly sold out despite costing around $1,000 (USD), what with it also being made of pure gold and the world’s first delta-shaped legal currency.
The rest of the collection consists of $20 coins bearing the Starship Enterprise in either pure silver or with a colored image, $20 coins with colored stills from classic Star Trek scenes, $10 coins with realistic paintings of Kirk, McCoy, Uhura or Spock, and a $0.25 Enterprise coin that comes with three similarly-themed stamps.
