One of Doctor Who’s most persistent enemies, the Cybermen, are brought to life on this coloured silver coin.
The cold and calculating Cybermen first appear in the cult series in 1966, and eventually became a race of conquerors who reproduced by taking other organic beings and forcibly changing them into Cybermen.

Originally born on Earth’s twin planet Mondas, the Cybermen were created as the Mondasians replaced parts of their dying bodies with plastic and steel. Eventually they added emotional inhibitors, supressing all feelings. Cybermen can convert humans wherever they go, and take orders from a Cyberleader, whose data can be downloaded to a drone if the leader is destroyed.
