Science and The Royal Mint - a perfect fit. From the modern metallurgists working there today, all the way back to 1696 when Sir Isaac Newton became mint master, science has played its role at the official mint of the Crown. This new Stephen Hawking 50p continues that tradition, as the first in a new series featuring Innovation in Science. The first time Hawking has been celebrated on a UK coin, this copper-nickel 50p was officially approved by Hawking’s estate.
Available as a Brilliant Uncirculated UK 50p, each Stephen Hawking coin is housed in a typically high quality Royal Mint folder.
