The beautiful colourized, proof quality coin has vibrant colours, a highly polished appearance and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The mintage, including the two coin sets, is limited to only 6500 coins worldwide meaning that this is sure to become a prized coin for both numismatic collectors and Star Trek fans.
Star Trek Deep Space Nine ran from 1993 to 1999. The series featured different themes compared to the previous Star Trek series, with much less exploration of physical space.
The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Queen Elizabeth II 1 Dollar Tuvalu 2015" and the artist's initials.
The reverse of the other coin features a relief of Deep Space 9 majestically soaring over a colourized space scene. The wreath of laurel leaves surrounding the edges of the coin mimic the logo of the United Federation of Planets and were used in ancient Rome to symbolize victory. DS-9 was originally a Cardassian space station, which the Bajoran's invited the United Federation of Planets to administer control of after they gained their freedom from the Cardassians.
This coin, like the original run of the series, is strictly limited, get yours today before they are all gone!
ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint's 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
This coin comes in a unique coin container that lights up when opened. The coin container is packed in a black collector's box featuring an overhead view schematic image Deep Space 9.
