About Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton was born on the 25th of December 1642 in Lincolnshire, England. He was a mathematician, astronomer, and physicist. He was best known for formulating the laws of motion and his mathematical description of gravity. He was Master of the Royal Mint between 1700 and 1727 when died aged 84 years.

About the coin

The design on the reverse of the coin is based on the sun and the universe, as this embodies the advances in science that Sir Isaac Newton was responsible for.

The coin, even in circulation form is striking – with the circles increasing in size from the sun to the edge of the coin, this creates and additional shine. It does make the writing and design less visible, but it makes a very attractive addition to any collection.

How much is the Isaac Newton 50p worth?

A 50p coin created for UK circulation by The Royal Mint will always be worth at least 50p. The coin can be in pretty much any condition and a shop will accept it as face value payment.

When a coin is considered collectable by a large number of people, even if the coin was struck to be used in circulation - it's value to a collector will rise to more than face value. In 2009 a coin was struck to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Kew Gardens, with a low mintage of 210,000 coins for circulation, the Kew Gardens 50p now sells for about 140 times face value.

The Isaac Newton 50p is worth £3.45 to a circulation coin collector taking part in The Great British Coin Hunt.
