Perth Mint New Discovery Coin Release

1 min read

A new silver coin from the Perth Mint “celebrates the success” of Star Trek: Discovery.

“Most prominent on the coin’s reverse design is First Officer Michael Burnham, the protagonist of Star Trek: Discovery and a woman who takes a traditionally male name. Further reflecting the diversity of the crew are, clockwise to the right of Burnham, Sylvia Tilly, a cadet who works under Chief Engineer Paul Stamets and a roommate of Burnham; Voq/Ash Tyler, a Klingon who undergoes surgery to pose as a human; Stamets, who is the first openly gay character in a Star Trek series; Captain Gabriel Lorca; and First Officer Saru, the first of the Kelpien species to enter Starfleet service.

“Also included in the design is a depiction of the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, the Star Trek: Discovery icon, and a representation of a nebulous galaxy background.”

The Star Trek: Discovery Crew 2019 2 OZ Silver Proof Coin is 99.99% pure silver, and comes in Star Trek-themed presentation packaging with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Only two thousand of these coins will be minted.
