Disney Gold Star Trek 3
Produced for Paramount Studios Coins
Star Trek pure .999 silver and gold coin types and the mintage figures including some photos for some of these very rare Rarities Mint produced coins exclusively for Paramount Studios.


Thank you to our friend Jon B. for the images in this Rarities Mint article.


Star Trek Coin Mintage
Paramount Studios partnered with the Anaheim, California based company, the same coin designer and manufacture operated as the maker of .999 fine Gold and Silver coins for the Walt Disney Company from 1987 through the early 1990’s and ended business 1995. The business Rarities Mint is closed today.


Disney Coins COA Certificate
COA Certificate of Authenticity
Rarities Mint installed each coin into a plastic holder placed that inside of the jewelry box for display and each came with a COA that shared the production number stamped out of the dies and these laminated certification sheets included the numbers coin 1 of 5000 as an example with the actual coins serial number printed in read say 204 that would in theory be coin 204 from 5000.


Mintage projections versus actual production
Great news if you own any of the Rarities Mint coins for the Walt Disney Company, Paramount Studios, or Lucas Films. LTD, Universal Studios Amblin, or United Feature Syndicate
Actual production number for many Rarities Mint coins were far lower then the numbers that the certifications claimed, our thoughts are that the certs (COA’s) were produced in advance of the actual production based on pre orders and the likes.
