The actual Royal Mint coin design will be different - it will show a cogwheel (which may not be a wheel from the machine shown above) and the inscription "ALAN TURING" set against a background of letters.

Release Date: Alan Turing Fifty Pence

The Alan Turing 50p products have now been added to The Royal Mint imminent release list - whilst this would normally mean the coin will be issued very soon, there have been release delays due to production schedule issues at The Royal Mint.

The Kanga & Roo 50p should have been released in June but was delayed. It is very likely that the Turing 50p coins will now be the next release as 23 June 2022 was the 110th anniversary of the birth of Alan Mathison Turing.
