In the science fiction series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, latinum was a rare silver coloured liquid of extremely high value prized by many civilizations in the Alpha Quadrant, particularly the Ferengi Alliance. In order to be used as tradable currency, liquid latinum was suspended within gold or gold dust to form the end product, gold-pressed latinum. The gold served only as a carrier for the latinum and was worthless to the Ferengi.
There were several denominations of gold-pressed latinum, the smallest being the slip, followed by the strip, the bar, and the brick. One bar of gold-pressed latinum is equal to twenty strips or 2,000 slips of latinum.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
The reverse of the bar resembles a gold-pressed latinum slip as used in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The design includes the maker’s mark.
