Star Trek: The Next Generation debuted in 1987 and ran for
178 episodes over seven seasons until 1994, making it the longest running Star
Trek series to date. The series followed the 24th century adventures of Captain
Jean-Luc Picard and his crew on board the latest incarnation of the U.S.S.
Enterprise NCC-1701-D, a century after Captain James T. Kirk embarked on his
five year mission in The Original Series.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure
silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse features the Star Trek: The Next
Generation 30th Anniversary logo and a colour image of the main crew members of
the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D including Deanna Troi, Worf, William T. Riker,
Picard, Geordi La Forge, Beverly Crusher and Data. The design also includes The
Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government
of Tuvalu, the coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date and the monetary denomination.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the Star
