The Silurians, or Homo reptilians, are an earthly species who lived on Earth at least 300 million years before human beings evolved.

WSiluriancoin_case_smallith the approach of an object in the sky that they believed would devastate Earth, many went into hibernation deep beneath the surface.

Eons later (in 1970 to be precise), the Silurians were awoken by tests on an underground nuclear reactor.

Whilst honourable warriors, they often found co-habitation with humanity to be impossible, due to war-like factions on both sides.

Things came to a head again in the 2010 episode The Hungry Earth when a new form of these reptilian humanoids were disturbed by a mining operation. As mankind and the Silurians teetered on the brink of all-out war, only Doctor Who could ensure the survival of both species!

Following exciting releases featuring the Daleks, Weeping Angels and Cybermen, the fourth coin from the Doctor Who Monsters series of 1/2oz silver proof coins portrays the Silurians. Like previous releases, no more than 5,000 of these coins will be released.
