The sixth live-action series set in the Star Trek universe, Star Trek: Discovery was released on 24 September 2017 as a single serialised storyline rather than previous series’ weekly destination-based adventure format. The series continues to reflect Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's optimistic vision of the future, together with his allegories of the human condition and high-concept science fiction.
 
Set in the 23rd century, about 90 years after Star Trek: Enterprise and 10 years before Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: Discovery deals with hostilities between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire.
Star Trek: Discovery is notable for minority characters, taking a colour and gender-blind approach. Its diverse crew includes First Officer Michael Burnham, a female Commander with a traditionally male name and the first African-American woman playing a lead character in a Star Trek series.
 
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
 
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,500 of the Star Trek: Discovery First Office Michael Burnham & U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1301 2018 1oz Silver Proof Two-Coin Set.
 
DESIGN
The First Officer Michael Burnham coin’s reverse portrays a colour image of Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, as she appeared in Star Trek: Discovery, against a representation of the Delta Shield insignia and the inscription FIRST OFFICER MICHAEL BURNHAM. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness.
 
The U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 coin’s reverse depicts a colour image of the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031 against an intergalactic background surrounded by the white olive branches of the United Federation of Planets logo. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness.
 
Each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2018 year-date.
 
PRESENTATION
The two-coin set is packaged in a case designed to look like a Star Trek Transporter and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
