    Egads what da hales? This sort of stuff reminds me of when they were pushing painted Dinner Plates as ” investments”. These painted up “coins” are exactly like mini Dinner Plates.

    The end of the Coin mania is upon us. They are trying to throw all types of garbage at us now.

    What next , coins shaped like thimbels, buttons, match books, and pin back political buttons?

    I agree. I avoid 99% of all painted and plated coins.

    If memory serves I think these were selling for close to $100 today on Apmex. Once these drop to close to bullion value, and they eventually will, I may show some interest.

    Those are already there EIE…Just trying to find the people that “Collect”…At least they have some intrinsic value i.e. PM’s…But you don’t want the blue led light to come on and shine behind your coin when you open it up? I would love that! Question is, how much am I willing to pay for it?

  4. Tinto says

    If this sells out, wouldn’t be surprised to see the rest of the crew follow, perhaps characters from some of the episodes as well.

  5. Koichi Ito says

    Which coin was first have Star Trek on reverse side? What mint first minted Star Trek silver and gold coins? When was ifirst Star Trek coins was released?

  6. Frankie says

    Don’t get me wrong, Koichi, but why don’t you do a little research yourself and post your findings here than asking questions all the time you could find the answers to yourself?
    The point of a blog like this is to share your opinion and to contribute.

    @CW, from what I hear there is a new process where the enamel is being incorporated into the minting process and the color is struck into the coin and will never be removed or fade…interesting..
    @Frankie: I agree, his English is a bit bad but he ALWAYS asks questions here instead of sharing what he found out like “The first Start Trek coin was minted #$%^&*….”

    From what I hear CBS has never authorized a coin to be struck using the Star Trek logo or likeness..Could be wrong..

    Interesting if true because the coins themselves have the TM and copyright declaration on them relative to CBS. If this is not accurate, I would have thought CBS would have filed some type of legal filing to halt the release of the coins until the issue was settled.

    I purchased two of the USS Enterprise coins, one for a buddy and one for me. I’m not too concerned whether it appreciates or not, bought it because I like it. Don’t really like the Kirk design so I didn’t buy it.

    While some of you might have a point regarding long term value, the main reason to buy coins like this is for fun. I didn’t pick these particular pieces up, but outside of the Perth Mint Lunars, I’ve always known most of these one-offs had substantial risk attached.

    Buy and have fun!

    This is a new 10-coin series, not a one-off. And the 2 coin sets have jumped to $300 even though you can get the individual coins for $100 or less.
