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.
