Doctor Who Monster Series Sontaran Coin

Doctor Who Monster Series Sontaran Coin

The fifth and final coin in the Doctor Who Monsters series features the Sontarans, an aggressive clone-warrior race from Sontar. Known for their stocky build, greenish brown skin, and distinctive dome-shaped head, the Sontarans reproduce by cloning.

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.

OBVERSE

The coin is issued as legal tender of the South Pacific Island nation of Niue and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date and the monetary denomination on the coin’s obverse.

      It is not a sticker it is done by a process called pad printing which ensures the colour will never come off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTr9PhZLvOU
