The Treasury of Niue has released new silver collector coins which replicate one of the most familiar and iconic symbols of the Star Trek television series, which sets the standard for numismatic design and excellence.
The three-ounce and one-ounce silver Proof coins are struck in the unique shape of the USS Enterprise and produced by the New Zealand Mint at their facilities in Auckland on behalf of the Treasury of Niue. Each coin is minted with precision, bringing out every intricate detail with an oxidised (or Antique) finish which highlights much of the detail. The design includes the inscription U.S.S. ENTERPRISE and the Starship’s call letters and registration number NCC-1701 shown on the bow which is an abbreviation for Naval Construction Contract. The reverse or national side features the public seal of Niue along with the denomination 10 DOLLARS (3 oz.) or TWO DOLLARS (1 oz.) placed above the crest and the year of release, 2024, shown just below.
