The Perth Mint made Trekies around the world happy last year with the limited release of silver proof coins honoring the 60th anniversary of Star Trek. Created by Gene Roddenberry, the science fiction concept grew over the decades to include more than 10 features films and five television series. An all-new product is available now in the form of the 2016 1 oz Star Trek Deep Space Nine Silver Latinum Gold-Plated bar, now listed on Silver.com.

Bar Highlights:

  • Mintage of these bars capped at 5,000 worldwide!
  • Ships to you in Star Trek themed presentation packaging.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Mimics the appearance of latinum currency from Deep Space Nine.
  • One-sided design with reverse imagery only.
  • Gold-plated finish.

Latinum was a curious object in the world of Deep Space Nine. Though it was silver colored as a liquid, when transformed into a usable currency as a bar it was suspended in gold or gold dust. In the storyline of Deep Space Nine, latinum was a highly-prized item that was pressed into bars for use as a tradable currency.

The Ferengi Alliance was the civilization in Deep Space Nine that showed the greatest interest in latinum. To the Ferengi, the gold itself had little value. It was merely a means of transporting the more valuable latinum inside.

Now, the Perth Mint replicates the look of those latinum bars as a continuance of its popular Star Trek themed precious metals. The bar, though gold-plated and bearing the appearance of a gold bullion bar, actually contains .999 fine silver. In this way, gold is again rendered “useless” as a carrier for the valuable, pure silver of this bar.

On the reverse face of the bar you’ll find the latinum engravings that the Ferengi Alliance used on its bars in the show, along with a maker’s mark. Each 2016 1 oz Star Trek Deep Space Nine Silver Latinum Gold-Plated Bar here ships in a special wooden display case and arrives in Star Trek themed box, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Australia’s Perth Mint was founded in 1898, and today is the oldest operating mint in Australia. Though it is not part of the sovereign Royal Australian Mint, its products do enjoy legal tender status under the Currency Act of 1965.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
