A wide range of ideas for reviving the Star Trek franchise on television percolated between the original show’s cancellation and the debut of the long-runningStar Trek:The Next Generationin the Eighties. A core part of the new cast who would become in many ways the heart and soul of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew for fresh generations of viewers, William Riker was brought to life by Jonathan Frakes, and audiences witnessed his evolution from a brash young go-getter into a seasoned and canny leader who was fearlessly loyal to his friends. His iconic part in the Star Trek legacy is celebrated by the 2022 Niue Chibi Star Trek Riker Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin.
The Chibi series brings whimsy and fun to its depiction of famous characters, and the 2022 Niue Chibi Star Trek Riker Shaped Silver Coin carries on that tradition. Each coin comes in a themed display box with a Certificate of Authenticity that gives its unique number in the limited mintage.
Queen Elizabeth II appears on the coin’s obverse side in the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy first seen in 1998, identifying it as legal tender of Niue. She is accompanied by the inscriptions “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “2022” and “2 Dollars,” along with confirmation of the coin’s weight and silver content, as well as the copyright and trademark of CBS Studios.
Will Riker, sporting his signature beard and the red uniform of Starfleet’s command division, appears as a brightly colorized sculpture on the coin’s reverse. The “big head” caricature style showcases his characteristic blend of determination and warm affability.
Commander William Riker has been a presence in the Trek franchise since he first appeared inStar Trek: The Next Generation,going on to appear in multiple Star Trek novels, shows, and movies even as his actor Jonathan Frakes has continued to help shape the Star Trek legacy from behind the camera. Riker was a great example of the evolution of characters that has marked new eras of Star Trek: developing from a brash hothead in the early seasons of the show into a canny, wily but ultimately warm presence as time went on, a man loyal to his friends and to the cause of Starfleet above all.
