2016 Canada 20 Dollar 1-oz Silver Enterprise Gem Proof
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of an Iconic Franchise
When Star Trek debuted with The Original Series, as it is now known, on NBC, it got off to a very shaky start. In fact, the network wanted to cancel it during its second season due to low ratings, but it was saved due to the outcry from its most ardent fans. NBC did cancel it the following season in spite of another campaign by its fans. Who would have guessed after such humble beginnings that it would lead to an additional five TV series, an animated series, and thirteen movies?!
Given its wild success over the past half century, the Royal Canadian Mint deemed it fitting to issue coins to mark the 50th anniversary of the television debut. This Silver Star Trek Enterprise is among those coins and is perhaps the most universally desirable. Everyone has their favorite episodes and characters, but there is only one U.S.S. Enterprise. This coin depicts the famous starship in color as it was seen on the episode I, Mudd!
- ONE OOF SEVERAL COINS HONORING A HISTORIC DEBUT – The Royal Canadian Mint issued several coins celebrating characters, scenes, and episodes from Star Trek: The Original Series to mark its 50th anniversary. This Silver Enterprise Proof stands alone, though, as there is and ever will be only one Enterprise.
- FOUR NINE FINE WITH PROOF FINISH – Each Enterprise coin was struck at the Royal Canadian Mint from 1-oz of 99.99% fine silver and has a stunning proof finish that enhances the space theme beautifully.
- CANADA LEGAL TENDER -- Each 2016 Silver Enterprise Proof is $20 Canadian legal tender, as noted at the bottom of the obverse in Star Trek’s unique font.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE – Only 11,500 Silver Enterprise Proofs were minted, meaning that many Trekkers will not be able to get their hands on this coin!
Movies and television shows come and go, but few enjoy the enduring popularity or have the ardent following that Star Trek has attracted. From a humble beginning, it has penetrated the culture, with common expressions like, “That would be highly illogical,” and “Beam me up, Scotty!” continuing to be used in conversation more than half a century after the franchise began. Crew members have come and gone and storylines have changed over the decades, but the U.S.S. Enterprise endures. With a mintage of just 11,500 pieces, just a handful of Trekkers will have the chance to own this one-of-a-kind coin, so order yours today at GovMint.com.
