The Royal Canadian Mint shared on its Twitter page some cool things happening around the #StarTrek50 anniversary.
William Shatner, the well-known Canadian actor who played Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek television series, was on hand at the RCM on Thursday, May 12, to strike his own collector's edition silver coin.
Shatner, who's no stranger to numismatics, can be seen in the tweet below completing the striking process, and having a great time doing so.
This is not the first time Star Trek and the numismatic hobby have crossed paths:
- Perth Mint honores Star Trek: Enterprise television series with coins from Tuvalu
- Star Trek's Captain Kirk, USS Enterprise featured on new Perth Mint silver coins
- Perth Mint coins explores 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' television series
