Star Trek: The Next Generation Collection – new issues launch today!

Today sees the launch of the penultimate silver coin notes in the Star Trek: The Next Generation Characters Collection: ship’s counsellor Deanna Troi and the superhuman Soong-type android, Data.

Of human and Betazoid heritage, Deanna Troi's Betazoid side is known for its inter-species telepathy and its emotional empathy with most other species, which led to her heightened counselling skills. Data is self-aware, sapient, sentient and anatomically fully functional android. Due to his advanced programming and superhuman abilities, in 2364 he was named as chief operations officer and second officer on U.S.S. Enterprise, under Captain Jean-Luc Picard. At the same time Deanna, as lieutenant commander, was assigned as ship's counsellor.

Made from 5g of pure silver, the note’s reverse has two images of each character, one printed in colour and one engraved to let the silver shine. The unique number in the mintage is also printed on each note and it is presented in a protective sleeve which includes details of the note’s authenticity.

Legal tender in Niue, there’s a worldwide mintage of only 10,000 for each of these notes. The obverse of the note features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and it is decortaed with Star Trek insignia.

Deanna Troi and Data are part of the six-note Star Trek: The Next Generation Characters Silver Coin Note Collection which also includes Picard, Worf, Riker and Geordi La Forge. A hardcover collector’s album is included with the purchase of the first note featuring Jean-Luc Picard. The album features a page for each note and a short biography of each character.

If you’re a fan of this epic series you’ll want to add these to your collection now!
