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.”
