Played by Nichelle Nichols, Uhura was one of the most culturally relevant characters on television when the original Star Trek series was on the air. As an integral part of the Enterprise crew, Uhura was a cultural icon who served as the inspiration for countless who followed in her footsteps. The 2016 Proof Canadian $10 Star Trek Uhura 1/2 oz Silver Coin features a fully colorized image of Nichols in her pivotal role as Lieutenant Uhura. Each of the coins is shipped protected in Star Trek themed packaging. With a pure silver content of .9999, these coins are a great investment for those looking for fun additions to their collection.

Uhura was an important member of the multicultural Enterprise crew. Combined with the actor George Takei, who is of Japanese heritage, these two actors represented groundbreaking strides in television history and in the way that minorities were depicted on television. Lieutenant Uhura was the first character to star on a television show where she was not depicted in a menial role.
