These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Coins and Star Trek, together in one place:
OTTAWA, ONTARIO, STAR DATE: MAY 12, 2016 - The Royal Canadian Mint, under license by CBS Consumer Products, is set to uncover a new world of collectibles celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series.  The unforgettable characters and imagery of the revolutionary TV show, which has captivated legions of fans in Canada and around the world since 1966, have been captured on a stunning variety of coins devoted to the original series.  
The entire press release is here, and the coins are here.  Should that latter link ever go away, here's a screenshot:

I'm sure these will be for sale at Vul-con, which I am attending :)

Update:  The US Postal Service is releasing some Star Trek stamps this year but their web site doesn't state when they'll be released or even allow for a pre-order.  They are also releasing a Jaime Escalante stamp!  Both the Star Trek set and the Escalante stamp can be seen here.  Having just ordered my Star Trek coins from the RCM, I'll need these Star Trek stamps, too, as well as an Escalante.
