Official New UK 2019 50p Release

The popularity of commemorative 50p coins has soared in recent years, with historical events, icons of popular culture and remarkable people all taking centre stage in the coin collecting world. It is unsurprising, therefore, that Stephen Hawking’s incredible achievements would be commemorated in this way. However, The Royal Mint’s Stephen Hawking 50p is even more special as this coin will not be going into circulation, so you will not find it in your change.

What’s more, Stephen Hawking joins JUST TWO other extraordinary figures to be commemorated on UK coinage within one year of their death, alongside Winston Churchill and the Queen MotherOf course, his contribution to humanity make this an undeniably deserved honour and for collectors, make this Stephen Hawking 50p all the more collectable!

What’s more, your coin will come beautifully presented in its Official Royal Mint presentation pack with educational detail that brings the science of black holes to life.
