About each coin design:

First coin: The City on the Edge of Forever
Your coin design recreates a key scene from the 1967 Star Trek episode, The City on the Edge of Forever. Vibrant colour brings to life the engraved image of Captain James T. Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner) and Mr. Spock (portrayed by Leonard Nimoy); both in their famous Starfleet uniforms, they stand among the ruins before the oversized, ring-shaped entity known as
The Guardian of Forever. Augmented reality technology enhances the overall design, recreating the illuminated qualities of the time-travelling portal that is an object of wonder. Engraved in a special
Star Trek font is the word "CANADA", the face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2016".

Did you know…

  • The City on the Edge of Forever is frequently cited as one of the greatest TV episodes of all time.
  • The episode was one of four Star Trek episodes nominated for a Hugo Award in 1968, and won for Best Dramatic Presentation; it would be the only television series to do so until 25 years later.
  • It is also the only Star Trek episode to win a Writers Guild of America (WGA) Award.
  • It is one of several episodes that were digitally re-mastered, with changes that include enhanced shots of the planet as seen from space.
  • After several script changes, filming took just a little over a week in February 1967 and cost considerably more than the average budget for an episode; in fact, it was the first season's most expensive episode produced.

Second coin: Mirror, Mirror
Your coin design recreates a key scene from the memorable 1967 Star Trek episode Mirror, Mirror. Selective colour enhances the engraved image of an alternate version of Mr. Spock (portrayed by Leonard Nimoy) performing a Vulcan mind meld on Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (portrayed by DeForest Kelley). McCoy bears a fearful expression while Spock sports an uncharacteristic goatee and altered uniform—evidence that the away team is in a mirror universe where their fellow crewmembers are behaving very differently. Engraved in a special Star Trek font is the word "CANADA", the face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2016".

Did you know…

  • This was the first introduction of Star Trek's Mirror Universe, but it wouldn't be the last—decades later, the concept was revisited in spin-off series, publishing, and more.
  • As head of security, "Mirror" Sulu is seen wearing a red uniform in this episode, which made him the first Star Trek character to appear in all three colours of the Starfleet uniform. He typically wears the gold uniform associated with command, but he briefly wore the blue uniform of science and medical personnel in a previous episode.
  • Mirror, Mirror also marks the first episode in which Scotty (played by Canadian actor James Doohan) addresses Captain Kirk by his first name, Jim. Otherwise, McCoy and Spock are the few to speak familiarly to Kirk.
  • Throughout the series, McCoy is frequently at odds with Spock over the Vulcan tendency to favour logic over emotion; despite their bickering, the two share a mutual respect and a deep friendship.

DeForest Kelley, who portrayed McCoy, had originally been offered the role of Spock in 1964; he turned it down. Before taking the role as the ship's doctor, whose catchphrases include "I'm a doctor, not a…"

Third coin: The Trouble with Tribbles
Your coin design recreates a key scene that has remained a fan favourite, even beyond the Star Trek community. Selective colour brings to life the engraved image of Captain James T. Kirk (portrayed by Canadian actor William Shatner) in his green Starfleet uniform. He stands half-buried in a pile of small, furry creatures known as Tribbles, which have fallen out of an overhead compartment. Engraved in a special Star Trek font is the word "CANADA", the face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2016".

Did you know…

  • The grain's Canadian origin is a reference to a 1953 breeding program at the University of Manitoba, where efforts focused on developing triticale (a wheat-rye hybrid) as a high-yield, drought-tolerant food crop.
  • It took eight different takes to capture the avalanche of Tribbles depicted on the coin's reverse.
  • Hundreds of Tribbles had to be created for this episode, which originally aired on December 29, 1967. Many were sewn using rolls of carpet, with surgical balloons or beanbags stuffed into them. Others were stuffed with a mechanical toy so that their movement could be captured on camera.
  • The sounds "emitted" by Tribbles are a unique combination of cooing doves, screeching owls and shrinking balloons!
