"These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise…"

Before humans set foot on the moon, imaginations were already exploring the possibilities of what might lie in the far reaches of our galaxy.

Star Trek's imaginative storylines have brought Canadian fans on an incredible journey through time and space. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov—they have been our fictional trailblazers in this new frontier. Guided by the Prime Directive and a spirit of discovery, U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew have taken us to more than 70 different worlds while encountering nearly as many alien species. Their fictional mission inspired many Canadians to pursue careers in science and technology, while futuristic Trek tech have inspired the smartphones and tablets that have transformed everyday life.

Even today, we continue to associate the Enterprise with extraordinary discoveries, unforgettable first contacts and some memorable opponents—from the fearsome warships of the Imperial Klingon Fleet to the cloaked Romulan Birds-of-Prey. Repeat airings of the series' 79 episodes have cemented Star Trek's status as a cultural icon that is celebrated by Canadian fans across the country, and in the official Star Trek capital of Canada: Vulcan, Alberta.

Made for the fans! An unforgettable addition to any collection, and an original gift that will be treasured and valued by the Star Trek fan in your life! Order today!

Special Features:
  • Celebrates the 50th anniversary of Star Trek—a television series that is beloved by generations of Canadians, and whose vision of the future helped inspire scientific innovation!
  • RECREATES A SCENE FROM THE 1968 EPISODE I, MUDD! The past meets the present in this ode to a pop culture icon! Advanced colour and engraving techniques recreate a scene from the 1968 episode I, Mudd, while the Star Trek font adds a uniquely nostalgic feel.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, with a limited mintage worldwide.
  • An official licensed product approved by CBS Studios.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt!

Design:

The reverse design is an eye-catching tribute to the U.S.S. Enterprise. Recreating a scene from the 1968 episode I, Mudd, the application of rich colour over the engraved rendering gives the Enterprise a remarkable life-like quality. This three-quarter view allows for a full glimpse of the orbiting vessel's saucer section and engineering hull, while the ship's twin warp nacelles are visible at the rear. Against a dark expanse of space in the background, the yellow, gold and red-brown colours of the Class K planet below seem all the more vibrant. Partially framing the top and bottom portions of the scene are the engraved word "CANADA", the face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2016", all in a special Star Trek font.

Did you know…
  • Star Trek actually made its Canadian television debut two days earlier than the series' premiere on its own network!
  • Two models were used throughout the series' production: an 11-foot studio model and a smaller "3-footer" used mostly for promotional shots.
  • The studio model was significantly modified eight times since it was built in 1964. Its last alteration came in 1967 during the production process for the famous episode, The Trouble With Tribbles.
  • Within Star Trek's fictional timeline, the Enterprise served as a Starfleet vessel for 40 years and achieved her greatest fame under the five-year command of Captain Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner).
  • Throughout the franchise's history, several incarnations of the ship were also named
    U.S.S. Enterprise. The Enterprise from The Original Series bears the (fictional) registration number NCC-1701, while subsequent Enterprise ships are distinguished by a different letter
    (e.g. NCC-1701-B).
  • A replica of the Enterprise was erected in 1995 in Vulcan, Alberta, where the annual "Spock Days" draws Star Trek fans from around the world!

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with graphic beauty box.

    There should have been some detail of the ship explicitly presented on the coin. Instead it looks like a sticker applied to the surface of a coin.

                A:

                Our coins are coloured with paint. The Mint developed a sophisticated pad printing process whereby successive layers of the design are "dabbed" onto the coin, producing a high resolution image with an unprecedented range of colour. The Mint has rigorous quality control test in place on our painted coins to ensure that they meet our high standards for durability.

                A:

                Sometimes as ships pass through gaseous anomalies it affects the shadows and light that is reflected onto the surface of the ship and its hull giving this dark look in colour.

            • Q:

              Why is the image so dark? As one reviewer stated, it is difficult to see the Enterprise in the image in normal light. Under direct sunlight, the image looks better. Is there a rationale behind rendering the image in this way?
              Asked on 5/22/2016 by None from Moncton NB

              2 answers

              • A:

                I've been trying to figure this out myself since some people on here say they can't see a thing and others say it has great detail. Upon inspection, I've noticed a couple of things.
                When the coin is in the air-tight, plastic capsule, it creates reflections that prevent the coin from being seen properly. Once taken out of the case, the details are easier seen. The other thing is the image of the enterprise has a shadow PLUS the relief of the image on the coin itself casts its own shadow. So, you end up a shadow on top of a shadow. When you tilt the coin, you can see more detail because the shadow cast by the relief changes.
