New Zealand Mint has struck the ultimate collectors set in ½ ounce 999 Fine Silver coins that carry a coloured image of all Eleven 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 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 a worthy memento of Doctor Who’s enduring popularity.”
Only 3,000 sets will be issued for sale worldwide, with a further 1,000 coins offered for individual sale of each of the 11 Doctor coins.

The 50th Anniversary Doctor Who set will be available for purchase from the New Zealand Mint website for $NZ699.00 while the individual Doctor coins are priced at $NZ80.00 each.
