The Perth Mint of Australia has just released a set of coins featuring Deep Space Nine.

This follows the release of coins for the original series and for The Next Generation.

The 99.9% pure silver coins feature Captain Benjamin Sisko, and the Deep Space Nine station.

The coins are sold individually (5,000 each) or as a set of two (1,500). As with the other two sets of coins, expect these to sell out quickly.

“Appearing on the reverse of the 2015 Captain Benjamin Sisko Silver Proof Coin is an image of actor Avery Brooks who portrayed the commander. Inscriptions include the mint mark of P, CAPTAIN BENJAMIN SISKO, 1 OZ 999 SILVER, and TM & © 2014 CBS. ARR.”

“Depicted on the second coin is Deep Space Nine set against a colorized space background. Inscribed around the station are the mint mark of P, STAR TREK, DEEP SPACE 9 as well as DEEP SPACE NINE, 1 OZ 999 SILVER, and TM & © 2014 CBS. ARR.”

“Each obverse offers a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include QUEEN ELIZABETH II, 1 DOLLAR, 2015 and TUVALU. Each is struck as legal tender of Tuvalu.”

The art for the coins was created by Ian Rank-Broadley, and Jennifer McKenna.

The coins sell for $78.50 US individually, or for $157 for the two-coin set. To order, head to the following links for the Sisko coin, the Deep Space Nine station coin or the two-coin set.
