Doctor Who Coin Set in Silver Announced

New Zealand Mint celebrates Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary with 11 Silver Doctors!

Credits! Defaults! Gideons! Grotzits!* The man who never carries currency is now legal tender, thanks to New Zealand Mint and this spectacular, limited edition coin set.

New Zealand Mint has struck the ultimate collectors set in in ½ ounce 999 Fine Silver coins that carry a coloured image of all 11 Doctors to have played the role since the series’ creation in 1963.

Produced in collaboration with BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand, the limited edition coin set comes packed in a 3D replica of the Doctor’s fob watch.

The coins are legal tender for $1 in the South Pacific Island nation of Niue, making them an ideal item for Doctor Who fans around the world.

There are not many television shows which boast a 50 year history.  To be able to celebrate that evolution in such a unique way, as this silver coin set does, is something Doctor Who fans will love.

…NZ Mint chief executive Simon Harding says.

Adds Rachael Hammond, BBC Worldwide ANZ’s Senior Licensing Executive, Consumer Products:

To celebrate 50 years is a remarkable achievement for a television show and these 11 silver coins provide a worthy memento of Doctor Who’s enduring popularity.
