    • Sir Isaac Newton - Master of the Royal Mint

      Isaac Newton was Master of the Mint at the Royal Mint for three decades, during this time he improved assaying techniques and refined weights and measures to standards never seen before.

      After overseeing the new coinage for the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 he also supervised the huge task 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 commemorative uncirculated fifty pence coin is struck to silver proof standard and is a limited edition presentation of 4,000 coins.

      • Coin designers: Aaron West (Reverse); Jody Clark (obverse)
      • Weight: 8.0g
