In 2015, Perth Mint issued a series of Silver Proof colour coins, on behalf of Tuvalu to celebrate ‘Star Trek Voyager.
This coin features the U.S.S. Voyager NCC- 74656. The coin is housed in a communicator which ‘Captain Kirk uses to say ‘Beam me Up Scotty’. The communicator itself lights up!
Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons until 1969. Set in the future the science fiction series follows the adventures of Captain James T Kirk, and his crew.
Since Star Trek’s release, it has developed into a cultural phenomenon with a range of spin off television series and a number of feature films over the last 5 decades.
The U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 is fast and powerful, with the ability to land on a planets surface. It is one of the most technologically advanced vessels in the Star Fleet, utilising computer circuity that incorporates synthetic neural tissue.
U.S.S. Voyager was one of the earliest intrepid-class star ships constructed and featured a number of technological innovations that become available in the 2370’s including a bio-neural circuity variable geometry nacelles and an Emergency Medical Hologram program.
The coins reverse portrays a colour image of the U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 flying away from a Borg cube in space, as it appeared in the television series Star Trek : Voyager.
The coin comes complete with numbered Certificate of Authenticity, communicator housing, box and protective sleeve.
