The new three-coin series from the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates some of the epic moments from Star Trek history. In the first release, a scene from the episode “The City on the Edge of Forever” is captured in brilliant full color. As the second release, a scene depicting Spock as he encounters Captain Kirk is captured from the episode “Mirror, Mirror.”
In the finale release of the series, scheduled for late 2016, the Royal Canadian Mint will introduce another colorized design from the episode entitled “The Trouble with Tribbles.” Each coin has brilliant colorized finishes on the reverse design, with copyrights held by CBS.
The year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek universe appearing on CBS television in the United States. Although Star Trek: The Original Series only ran for three seasons starting in the fall of 1966, it lived on as a cult classic that spawned countless comic books, animated series, four further TV series, and more than a dozen feature films.
On the obverse of each 2016 1 oz Silver Canadian Star Trek Mirror Mirror coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her right-profile portrait was created by Susanna Blunt, and is accompanied by engravings of “Elizabeth II” and “D.G. Regina.”
The reverse of the Silver Canadian Star Trek Mirror Mirror coin features a scene from “Mirror, Mirror” in which Spock and Captain Kirk interact. A landing team led by Captain Kirk is accidentally transported to a parallel universe when they are trying to return to the ship during an Ion storm and the transporter malfunctions.
Each of these 2016 1 oz Silver Canadian Star Trek Mirror Mirror Coins is a Proof specimen.
