About the Coin

Doctor Who is currently the longest running and most successful science fiction television series of all time. Produced by the BBC, the programme follows the adventures of the last of the Time Lords – the Doctor.

The Sontarans are an aggressive, clone-warrior race from Sontar. They were engaged in a war lasting thousands of years with the Rutans. In pursuit of an advantage, Commander Linx tried to invade 13th century Earth, until repelled by the Doctor. Later meetings with the Doctor saw the Sontarans invading the Time Lord home planet of Gallifrey, and trying to covert Earth’s atmosphere into one suitable for warrior cloning.

This coin set has been developed in collaboration between BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand and New Zealand Mint.
