To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary and New Zealand being the second country to broadcast the show in 1964, the New Zealand Mint is producing a .999 Silver $2 coin.

The coin has a painted background to an engraved TARDIS in flight, features the words “Doctor Who 50th Anniversary 1963 – 2013″, and will come packaged in an incredible TARDIS presentation box along with a certificate of authenticity.

“I grew up watching Doctor Who as a child in New Zealand which, coincidentally, was the first country outside the UK to screen the show,” said NZ Mint chief executive NZ Mint Chief Executive. ”It’s a great honour to now be asked to produce these coins to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Fans are going to really like what we’ve come up with.”

The collectable coin is available for pre-order now for NZ$155 (approx £83) from the New Zealand Mint.
