Take a voyage through the galaxy with the 2015 Star Trek 2 Coin Silver Set - Captain Benjamin Sisko and Deep Space Nine. The set contains two Perth Mint coins which were issued by the country of Tuvalu. Both coins contain a $1 AUD denomination. The Perth Mint has made only 1,500 sets available for purchase!
Both coins feature the same obverse design. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the majority of the obverse. The legend displays the the Queen's name and title, the denominations of the coins, the issuing country, and the year.
The reverse of the Captain Benjamin Sisko coin features a colorized depiction of actor Avery Brooks as Captain Benjamin Sisko in the forefront. The background details a portion of the Deep Space Nine station as well as the character name "CAPTAIN BENJAMIN SISKO." The Deep Space Nine coin portrays the Deep Space Nine station on the reverse. The station is set against a colorized portrayal of interstellar space full of stars and other celestial bodies. The title of the series, "STAR TREK," can be found above the main illustration. Beneath the picture sit the two labels of the space station, "DEEP SPACE NINE," and "DEEP SPACE 9."
The two-coin set also includes a case designed to emulate a transporter from the Star Trek TV show. The case has an operating "door" which imitates that of a transporter from the show and activates a light when it is opened. The light simulates the light of a transporter and gives the idea that the coin, or Captain Sisko himself, is being transported.
The two-coin, Perth Mint set is limited to only 1,500. Indulge in the purchase of the 2015 Star Trek 2 Coin Silver Set - Captain Benjamin Sisko and Deep Space Nine from Gainesville Coins while supplies last!
