When Star Trek launched onto American televisions in 1966, it was the start of a franchise that has had an impact on countless around the world. The original series was only on the air for just a few years but it soon became a cult classic. In the decades since, there have been several spinoff television shows and movies. The 2015 Tuvalu Star Trek Deep Space 9 1 oz Silver Coin Proof pays tribute to the Deep Space 9 television show. The coins contain 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and have a face value of $1. The coins are backed by the government of the island nation of Tuvalu.
The Star Trek Deep Space 9 series was the first spinoff in the Star Trek franchise that didnt feature the direct involvement of Roddenberry. As the creator of the Star Trek universe, Roddenberry had a hand in every feature film and television series developed prior to his death in 1991. He did, however, give his blessing to the Deep Space Nine concept before his death.
The 2015 Proof Tuvalu Star Trek Deep Space 9 1 oz Silver Coin commemorates the Deep Space Nine space station that is found in the Alpha Quadrant, guarding over the Bajoran wormhole.
The obverse side of the 2015 Proof Tuvalu Star Trek Deep Space 9 1 oz Silver Coin features the 1998 right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, as imagined by Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy is featured in the center of the design, with her name engraved above, and the phrase 1 Dollar Tuvalu 2015 engraved below.
The reverse side of the 2015 Tuvalu Star Trek Deep Space 9 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of the Deep Space 9 space station. The space station is depicted in silver, with the immediate background offering a brilliantly colored depiction of space.
The Perth Mint is world-renowned for producing some of the most beautifully designed coins. The oldest mint in Australia, the Perth Mint is a state-owned facility under the control of the state government in Western Australia. The mint produces great coins for the island nation of Tuvalu.
