ABOUT THE COIN
Doctor Who is currently the longest running and most successful science fiction television series of all time. Produced in Great Britain by the BBC, the programme depicts the adventures of a time travelling, humanoid alien known as the Doctor.
Known as ‘The Lonely Assassins’, the Weeping Angels are quantum-locked alien killers, as old as the universe itself. When observed, they freeze like stone, but in the blink of an eye can move vast distances. The touch of an Angel hurls their victim back in time – allowing the Angel to feast on the energy of their unlived days. In the 51st Century, the Doctor trapped the Angels in a crack in time, erasing them from history.
This coin set has been developed in collaboration between BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand and New Zealand Mint.
This coin face depicts a relief engraved Weeping Angel, set against a dramatic colour background. This is surrounded by a finely engraved border design.
Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Country of Issue – Niue.
