Star Trek coins are now legal tender in Canada:

Does that mean I can use my old Franz Joseph 20 credit bills to buy Canadian whiskey?

Not sure. I couldn't get the pop-up ads to stop blocking me from reading the article. :)

Cool looking coins tho, and I didn't know Junker was in communication with alien leaders.

The Remastered Enterprise is legal tender. I blame Canada.

STAR TREK MONEY IS NOW LEGAL TENDER IN CANADA

There may not be money in the United Federation of Planets, but there’s now legal Star Trek currency in Canada, courtesy of the Royal Canadian Mint. Although some of these financial arrangements sound like they were made by a Ferengi.

Via The Trek Collective, the Canadian Mint has announced its plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek by releasing a line of coins that can actually be used in financial transactions…if you were so inclined. Some of them are even reasonably priced. The $10 colored coins featuring Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and Scotty are only being sold for slightly over the face value, while the $20 silver coins featuring the Enterprise are being sold at face value.

Image

Here’s where it gets dicey. The colored silver coins with the Enterprise are going for over $100 in Canadian dollars, even though it only has $20 in face value. But that pales in comparison to the pure gold Star Trek Delta Coin, which is based on the Starfleet insignia worn by the crew on the original series.

ImageImage

Looks nice, doesn’t it? But that $200 coin is going to cost you $1,300 in Canadian dollars…if it weren’t already sold out. Yes, it’s true: the 1,500 run of gold Star Trek Delta coins is already gone and presumably ready to enter the collector’s market, to fetch even higher prices from fans who are willing to open their wallets and max out their credit cards. At times like this, it’s always helpful to remember the first Ferengi Rule of Acquisition: “Once you have their money, you never give it back.”

Thanks! Those are neat. Interesting they included Uhura over McCoy.

And I see Queen Elizabeth on there. Good to know the Commomwealth survives into the 23rd century.

I'd say they chose Scotty over McCoy. No way they're picking all white dudes. Uhura was going to be on there.

They ditched the Southern white guy.

And Canadians don't understand why Southern white guys are pissed. :P

Oh, and just so I don't forget to include the real thing:
