STAR TREK’S RICH 50-YEAR HISTORY
Star Trek just turned 50 and to celebrate, APMEX is offering quite the novelty – a 2016 Tuvalu 1 oz Silver Star Trek: Original Series U.S.S. Enterprise coin! Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons, following the 23rd century adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and the Constitution-class starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, a powerful interstellar spacecraft dispatched by the Earth-based Starfleet Command to explore the galaxy.
With the ability to surpass the speed of light, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 was one of the United Federation of Planets’ most famous space-exploration vessels. The starship achieved lasting fame from the five-year mission she undertook under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. The mission handed down by Starfleet involved deep-space exploration “to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone beforeTM.”
