The Royal Canadian Mint announced the release of an extensive set of Star Trek coins being released over the next few months to mark the 50th Anniversary.

Most impressively though has to be the Starfleet-delta shaped coin. The coin has a crazy face value of $200 Canadian dollars! But it also happens to be minted in gold, so expect to pay way more than $200 if you decide to make a run at these coins. 

Other coins are minted in silver, like the USS Enterprise coin which is face-valued at $20:

At 73 years old, Harrison Ford stands to make at least $34 million for reprising the role of Han Solo. Ford was paid $25 million up front, and given a 0.5% share of the movie's earnings, meaning when the film hits $2 billion worldwide (it made over $500 million on its opening weekend), he'll get another $9 million. Meanwhile, Carrie Fisher only got $1.5 million to bring back General Organa.

Even that's a considerable bit more than what the film's two new stars, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, received; they each only got $450,000 (but do receive a share of the profits once it earns $1 billion globally). If you're keeping track, that means Ford is making 56 times what they are, and 17 times what Carrie Fisher got.

Han Solo is a pretty big deal, but that's still pretty ridiculous. I guess it's a little bit of back-pay for the measly $10,000 he received for the original film.
