The officers of Starfleet are the backbone of the Star Trek franchise, an organization of dedicated professionals who travel the galaxy to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and generally seek to go boldly where no one has gone before. One of the most famous members of this exalted community comes from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The ever-capable Commander William Riker is the First Officer, “Number One” and reliable right-hand of Captain Jean-Luc Picard: a man who could easily be a Captain in his own right, but whose signature quality above all else is his loyalty to his friends, the found family of the U.S.S. Enterprise. He’s celebrated by the 2022 1 oz Niue Silver Chibi Star Trek Riker Shaped Coin from the New Zealand Mint.

William Riker, played by Jonathan Frakes, is the heart and soul of the Enterprise crew for a generation that grew up watching Star Trek: The Next Generation in the Eighties and Nineties, and has remained a presence in the franchise ever since. Now he has his own collectible from the New Zealand Mint’s series of Star Trek Chibi coins.
The 2022 Niue Silver Chibi Star Trek Riker Shaped Coin provides a playful depiction of the fearless Commander, colorized and rendered in pure silver. JM Bullion ships each coin in a themed box ready for display, with each shipment fully insured and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies the coin’s unique number in the mintage.
The coin’s obverse side is dominated by an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender despite its shape. This is accompanied by inscriptions of the Queen’s name, the issuing country, year and face value, confirmation of the coin’s silver content, and CBS Studio’s copyright and trademark.
A colorized sculpture of Riker comprises the reverse side, sporting his signature beard and wearing his red command division uniform. His expression shows the character’s distinctive blend of determination and affable good cheer.
