Tuvalu Science Fiction Series Spock Proof Silver Coin
This coin celebrates the Science fiction series of Star Trek and the numerous accomplishments of this one-time Starfleet Enterprise’s right-hand-man to Captain Kirk. It has been struck in .999 fine silver by the Perth Mint under the authority of the Tuvalu government in a $1 denomination coin. The strike is a proof strike which means the fields have a mirror like finish and the actual strength of the stamping machine is three times that of a business strike coin – so the images are much more clear and defined. Proof coins are generally only made for collectors and this one is no exception to that rule.
The original Star Trek series featured several iconic cast members and Spock one was on the most notable of all. Half Vulcan and half Human – he was the son of Vulcan Sarek and Amanda Grayson, a human teacher. Spock first served as a Starfleet officer and then went on to be a Federation Ambassador after several decades. He was, of course, most known by his absolute reliance on pure logic to control his every move. He was instrumental in easing the tensions between the federation and the Klingon Empire and later in life went on to be an ambassador to the Romulan Star Empire.
This coin has sold out at the Perth Mint and there will be no more produced. It has been graded by NGC to exhibit the near perfect grade of PF69 as well as being verified as one of the coins produced within the first 30 days of production.
