This exciting new release depicts Captain James T. Kirk with the planet Jupiter. Captain Kirk was immortalised by William Shatner in Star Trek: The Original Series and in seven feature films. He also voiced the Captain in the animated version of the series. Kirk became Starfleets youngest captain and gained a reputation for unconventional tactics that were nonetheless almost always successful.
In 2018, William Shatner suggested The Perth Mint design a Star Trek: The Original Series Kirk coin that included the planet Jupiter. The actor has since personally endorsed this release, declaring it to be a lovely design filled with meaning. Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu. The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the Star Trek: The Original Series Kirk 2019 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
The coins reverse design portrays a coloured representation of Captain Kirk on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 and the Star Trek: The Original Series logo. Visible from the ships viewpoint is the planet Jupiter and one of its many moons, a reference to Jupiters personal significance to William Shatner. The design also includes The Perth Mints traditional P mintmark.
The coins obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, weight and fineness, and the 2019 year-date.
The coin is presented in a Star Trek branded classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged within a themed shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
