The New Zealand Mint were amazed when a Limited Edition Doctor Who Silver Coin, issued in collaboration with BBC Worldwide to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the legendary TV show, created a bidding frenzy!
The Mint had put the coin on eBay as part of a charity auction and when the auction ended the winning bid was an incredible 15 times more than its face value! It just shows how popular Doctor Who memorabilia, particularly coins, is with collectors all over the world.
However, it’s not just on eBay where collectors have been fighting to add a Dr Who Commemorative coin to their collection. Within just four weeks of general release the Mint had sold more than half of the Doctor Who Silver Coin’s 10,000 edition limit. And now, just three weeks after the fantastic ‘Day of the Doctor’ 50th Anniversary episode was aired it is unlikely that the Mint have any left at all.
A Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Gold coin follows the success of the Silver coin, and with a mintage of just 250 worldwide this one will not be available for long either.
