Facilitating breakthroughs in multiple fields, including the chemical structure of viruses and most notably offering a crucial contribution to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA, Rosalind Franklin is remembered on what would have been her 100th birthday as a pivotal innovator in science.

Now, for the first time ever, you can pay tribute to her pioneering impact on enabling modern scientific understanding with the brand-new UK Rosalind Franklin 50p, presented in an exclusive Capsule Edition

Official UK 2020 50p Release

This important 50p issue is the second in The Royal Mint’s Innovation in Science series, following last year’s coveted Stephen Hawking 50p which saw multiple sell-outs both at the Mint and here at Collectology with our exclusive capsule edition…all signs suggest the Rosalind Franklin 50p will go the same way!

Designed by David Knapton, the coin restores Franklin’s rightful legacy, putting her at the very heart of the DNA story. Struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Rosalind Franklin 50p is free from the blemishes and imperfections of circulating coins.

What’s more, this brand-new coin has been developed in collaboration with Kings College London, where Franklin carried out her vital work.

Limited Edition Presentation – 995 Worldwide!

Your Official UK Rosalind Franklin 50p has been hand-mounted into an exclusive collector card and encapsulated within a tamper-proof capsule to preserve the pristine condition of this important new-issue 50p.

Your capsule will come presented within a classic presentation case, accompanied by its individually numbered certificate of authenticity.

Just 995 of these original capsule editions have been issued worldwide. With the soaring popularity of UK 50p issues and the significance of this particular British scientific achievement, we’re expecting a fast sell-out.
