The very first series from Roddenberry was known as The Original Series, and though it was only on television for three years it managed to spawn the series’ most memorable characters. Among them was Captain Kirk, played by Canadian actor William Shatner.
The cast of characters on The Original Series gained a cult following after the show was cancelled in 1969, powering Star Trek forward in the decades to come with countless feature film releases and related television series.
Each 2016 ½ oz $10 Silver Canadian Star Trek Captain Kirk coin in this Silver.com listing is the first release in a series of four that will eventually feature portraits of other famous characters from The Original Series, including Leonard Nemoy as Spock.
On the reverse side of the coin you’ll find a colorized image of William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, wearing his golden uniform and sitting in his chair on the bridge of the Enterprise. To the right of his colorized portrait is a detailed rendering of the U.S.S. Enterprise, his Starfleet command ship.
The obverse face of the 2016 ½ oz $10 Silver Canadian Star Trek Captain Kirk coin features Queen Elizabeth II’s right-profile portrait. Each coin for sale today ships encapsulated in a custom graphic box that features an illustrated depiction of Captain Kirk, along with the Star Trek logo and 50th anniversary lettering.
