He travels in his trusty TARDIS, a space-time machine which outwardly takes the form of a mid-twentieth century British police public call box.

Doctor Who first aired in November 1963, and to date, the lead role has been played by eleven different actors. The program has received recognition from critics and the public as being one of the finest British television series ever produced and is aired around the globe.

In collaboration, BBC Worldwide Australasia and New Zealand Mint offer this stunning 1/2oz silver proof 11-coin set to celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary.

Issued by New Zealand Mint as legal tender under the authority of Niue Island, only 3,000 1/2oz silver proof 11-coin sets will be released worldwide in very special packaging that takes the form of the Doctor’s fob watch. The set will initially comprise eleven 1/2oz silver coins, each celebrating the Doctor in his various incarnations – from the original Doctor played by William Hartnell to the present Doctor embodied in actor Matt Smith. A twelfth recess is filled by a coloured token featuring a printed collage of all the Doctors. This token can be replaced by the Twelfth Doctor coin which is planned for release in 2014.

Each coin’s reverse features a high quality colour reproduction of the Doctor in his various incarnations. Behind him is a likeness of his nemesis in 3-dimensional relief. This is surrounded by a finely engraved border design inspired by technology and time travel.

Each coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2013 year-date and the monetary denomination


The 11-coins are packaged in a very special presentation case in the form of the Doctor’s fob watch and the set is accompanied by a Numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The fob watch case opens to display twelve recesses holding eleven 1/2oz silver coins and one printed token. The token can be replaced by the Twelfth Doctor Coin which is planned for release in 2014.
