The New Zealand Mint has produced a one-ounce gold coin to celebrate fifty years of the longest-running sci-fi television series, Doctor Who.
The front of the coin features an engraved picture of the iconic T.A.R.D.I.S. as well as a special 50th anniversary logo. The back depicts an engraved relief of the T.A.R.D.I.S. used by the Doctor to travel throughout space and time.
The coin has a nominal value of $200. Only 250 have been made and they are expected to go for $2,500 in the US (NZ – $3000).
“We think this limited edition Doctor Who one ounce gold coin will be snapped up in record time,” Mint chief executive Simon Harding said.
The coin has been issued as legal tender under the authority of Niue Island.
