2016 saw the 50th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek, on American television screens. Gene Roddenberrys brainchild had a humble start with just one small television series, set in space. The popularity of the science fiction show and the universe in which it was created saw the release of several more television shows, feature films, an animated series, books, and countless fan-fiction pieces. The 2016 Canadian $10 Star Trek Scotty oz Silver Coin Proof pays homage to the show, and to one of the key characters that made the original show such a hit. Played by James Doohan, Montgomery Scott was the engineer on board the Enterprise. These colorized silver coins contain .9999 pure silver and are highly collectible.
For a television show that lasted just three seasons, Star Trek saw the rapid rise of an incredible cult following. This led to the development and release of several additional television series, with renewed interest in the franchise each time a new show or feature film was announced. Scotty remains one of the most endearing and enduring characters of the franchise, with several catchphrases being attributed to the Scottish engineer.
Chief Engineer Montgomery Scotty Scott served on the USS Enterprise alongside other key characters, including Captain Kirk.
The obverse design of the 2016 Proof Canadian $10 Star Trek Scotty 1/2 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created in 2003 by artist Susanna Blunt. The Queen has appeared on every Canadian coin since she ascended to the throne.
The reverse design of the 2016 Canadian $10 Star Trek Scotty oz Silver Coin Proof features a colorized image of Canadian actor Jim Doohan, who played Scotty on both the television show and the subsequent films. Also depicted on the coin is an image of the communicator, which served as the inspiration for the mobile phones we all use today.
The 2016 Proof Canadian $10 Star Trek Scotty 1/2 oz Silver Coin is the second release in the Star Trek series of coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.
