The New Zealand Mint has announced a new series of Star Trek: The Next Generation Silver Coin Notes, the first of which will be available beginning tomorrow.
TrekCore got a sneak peek at the notes from the New Zealand Mint and has pictures of the first one and of the accompanying collector’s album. The the first one in this series of six will be that of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
From the press announcement regarding the new release: “With excitement building around the arrival of Star Trek: Picard, we are thrilled to reveal the first silver coin note in a new Star Trek: The Next Generation Characters Silver Coin Note Collection from New Zealand Mint, which features the esteemed leader himself, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This first release comes complete with a six-note collector’s album and shows Jean-Luc as he appeared in the original saga over twenty years ago.
“Made from 5g pure silver, this coin note features a striking colored image of Captain Picard along with an engraved scene showing him playing his Kataan flute. The unique number in the limited-edition mintage is also printed on each coin note and it is packaged inside a Star Trek-themed protective sleeve.
“The obverse of the note features the Star Trek insignia and the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to confirm it as a legal tender coin for Niue.
“A free Star Trek: The Next Generation Characters Collector’s Album allows you to easily display all six coin notes as they are released: Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, William T. Riker, Deanna Troi, Data and Geordi La Forge. Each page includes a short biography of the character featured on the note. If you’re an avid The Next Generation fan, then this is for you!
