      Sir Isaac Newton  was master of the mint for three decades during this time he improved assaying techniques (the way coin quality is checked) and refined weights and measures to standards never seen before.

      After overseeing the new coinage for the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 he went on to supervise the process of bringing Scottish coinage into line with English coinage, following the Union of England and Scotland in 1707. Thanks to Newton’s vision Royal Mint coins remain unrivalled in their accuracy and purity to this day.

      This 50p coin is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. It marks the 375th anniversary of Newton’s birth and features the elements of Proposition 11, in Book One of Newton's Principia Mathematica
