Coins honoring six decades of sci-fi excellence have been rolled out by the Perth Mint throughout 2015. The series started with two proof coins commemorating Captain James T. Kirk and the starship Enterprise from Star Trek: The Original Series. Subsequent coins in the series featured Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his Enterprise starship from Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Captain Benjamin Sisko and the Deep Space Nine station from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Now the series circles back around to The Original Series, and honors a man known by many as Mr. Spock. Played by actor Leonard Nimoy in the series and early feature films, Spock was the right-hand man to Captain Kirk and served as an ambassador between humans and various alien species.
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of Leonard Nimoy in character as Spock. He is featured in uniform in full color, while the background is a brilliant proof silver with the coin’s weight and purity engraved.
The obverse side of the 2015 1 oz Silver Star Trek Spock Proof Coin bears Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. Her image is surrounded by engravings that include “Queen Elizabeth II” and “1 Dollar Tuvalu 2015.”
Australia’s Perth Mint is the nation’s oldest operating facility, but is not affiliated with the Royal Australian Mint. Control of the mint was handed to the state government of Western Australia in the 1970s.
