The New Zealand Mint has just announced their Doctor Who Coin Set and Transformers Coin Set. The Doctor Who coin measures 40.1mm in diameter and comes with its own TARDIS packaging. The Transformers set is a two pack and each coin measures 40.7 mm in diameter, with both Optimus Prime and Megatron represented on the coins. The set includes a themed display cube featuring silver embossed Decepticon and Autobot insignias.
All coins are 10 oz of 0.999 silver and are a limited run, with 10,000 Doctor Who coins and 5000 Transformer sets being minted. Each coin has a face value of $2 NZ so you’ll actually be able to spend them at the local shops. 🙂
The Transformers set comes in at $234US and the Doctor Who coin at $130US (plus shipping ). They are available for pre-order now, with the Transformer set shipping 10 April and the Doctor Who set shipping 1 May.
