When Leonard Nimoy first made an appearance in American cinema, the world could hardly have guessed where his career was going to go. First appearing in 1952’s Zombies of the Stratosphere, Nimoy played a Martian invader in an ironic foreshadowing of the biggest role of his career. His image lives on today as the beloved Spock from Star Trek. Today, the 2016 ½ oz $10 Silver Canadian Star Trek Spock Coin is available to purchase on Silver.com in Proof condition.

Together with Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy, Mr. Spock was one of the three central characters in Star Trek: The Original Series. On the big screen and small, Nimoy played the role of Spock throughout the entirety of The Original Series, appeared in a two-part episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and eight of the Star Trek feature films.
Nimoy’s career in acting began in Hollywood as a teacher of acting classes. Following his appearance as a Martian, he would go on to become famous as Spock, the half-human, half-vulcan character in Star Trek. His last appearance in that role came in 2013, just two years before his death.
