Join the celebration as the Star Trek television series marks its 50th anniversary!
Beloved by millions, the original television series Star Trek has arguably helped shape the everyday lives of Canadians through its spirit of scientific innovation and discovery.
As the series celebrates its 50th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint presents an unforgettable coin and stamp set that pairs a coin with three collectible stamps by Canada Post, all presented in commemorative packaging.
The striking coin combines detailed engraving with vibrant colour for a colourful ode to the legacy of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701). The engraved centre showcases the distinctive arrowhead-shaped Starfleet insignia, with the word "CANADA", the face value "25 CENTS" and the year "2016" engraved alongside it in a special Star Trek font.
The stamp on the cover features a classic head-and-shoulder photo of the legendary commander of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain James T. Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner).
Inside the custom packaging, two coil stamps bring together classic nemeses from the television series. On the left is an overhead view of what is arguably the most iconic spaceship of our time: the U.S.S. Enterprise. Her counterpart in the Klingon Imperial Fleet, a D7-class battle cruiser, is depicted on the second stamp, as it appeared in the episode Day of the Dove.
A must for any Star Trek fan!
