2016 Tuvalu 1-oz Gold Star Trek Enterprise High Relief Proof
2016 One-Ounce Gold High Relief Star Trek Proof
For six decades now the Starship Enterprise has boldly gone where no man has gone before. Today it's heading right toward your collection at warp speed with this 2016 One-Ounce Gold High Relief Starship Enterprise proof struck to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek series, which first aired in 1966.
The Star Trek television series ran from 1966-1969. The original series was cancelled after just three years. However, the reruns were so popular that it became a cult classic, broadcast in over 100 countries. The Star Trek franchise includes seven series and a popular movie franchise with the most contemporary series started with the 2009 Star Trek reboot. It was the first television series to have an episode preserved in the Smithsonian, where an 11-foot model of the USS Enterprise is also exhibited on the same floor as the Wright brother’s original airplane. At the urging of hundreds of thousands of Star Trek fans who wrote into the White House, NASA’s first space shuttle orbiter was named Enterprise.
This massive gold proof is struck in spectacular High Relief, as only the masters of the craft at the Perth Mint can accomplish. The Enterprise is poised to blast off the surface of the coin as you hold it in your hands.
The proof is struck in one ounce of 99.99% gold—some of the purest gold used to strike coins anywhere in the galaxy! It has a legal tender value of $100 on the pacific paradise island of Tuvalu and features the Enterprise from the original series that launched in 1966 and the Star Trek 50th anniversary logo, as well as the trademark and copyright. It includes the year, weight and purity, along with the Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Only 400 of this spectacular Star Trek proof have been minted.
Each High Relief Proof is accompanied by its own Perth Mint numbered certificate of authenticity which verifies its specifications and design.
With millions of fans across the globe, this officially licensed 1-oz gold high relief proof struck by the Perth Mint is a great addition to any collection.
