Own the Charles Babbage 50p Coin in Flawless Silver Proof!

It’s been 150 years since the passing of Charles Babbage and to mark his achivements in history, The Royal Mint have released a 50p coin.

The 1820s saw Babbage work on the ‘Difference Engine’ to compile mathematical tables which he completed a little over a decade later. Furthering his achievement, Charles conceived a better idea resulting in the ‘Analytical Engine’. This was intended as a general symbol manipulator and even shares some of the same characteristics seen in computers today.

The Innovation in Science Series… continued!

Your Charles Babbage 50p is the FOURTH release in the series and is the first time featuring on a UK coin, making it a must-have for all science enthusiasts.

Featuring an original design highlighting the major milestones of Babbage's career, you can now celebrate with The Royal Mint’s silver proof limited edition!

Just 3,500 Worldwide
