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.
An advanced race of reptilian humanoids, tribes of Homo Reptilia were the dominant life-form on Earth before the evolution of humanity. When a large object appeared in the sky the Silurians retreated underground or escaped Earth in an Ark which entered Earth’s orbit as the Moon. The Doctor has encountered three tribes of Silurians whose hibernation was disturbed by human activity. Whilst honourable warriors, they often found co-habitation with humanity to be impossible, due to war-like factions on both sides.

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

Reverse Design
