Enterprise NCC-1701. In the design on this side, Kirk is captured in real-life colors on the bridge of the Enterprise as the depths of space behind him yield a brightly colorized view of Jupiter and some of its surrounding moons.
William Shatner did not design the images on the reverse of these coins, but he envisioned a depiction of himself as Captain Kirk for the coins with Jupiter visible in the background. According to the Perth Mint, Shatner even weighed in on the final design saying it is “a lovely design filled with meaning. Shatner played Kirk in all three seasons of The Original Series and seven feature films released across the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
