Royal Canadian Mint Star Trek coins

In 2016 the Royal Canadian Mint launched a series of Star Trek coins, offering a variety of designs featuring characters, ships, scenes, and even a delta-shaped coin. Most of the coins were issued in precious metals, and were therefore sold for prices much higher than their given face values.
