Sadly, reports that Canada is to introduce a Star Trek based five-dollar coin featuring William Shatner are not serious. Except that thing about changing Sir Wilfrid Laurier to look like Mr. Spock. We really do that (hat tip to Fred).
Shatner beamed with joy when told he had been selected to be on the face of the coin. "I can't...tell you...how happy I am," he said in halting English. "No bones about it. I hope these coins...live long...and prosper...like my career."

I hate it when I comment on another blog, and then someone else makes money off the same idea.
