Design details:

Even though the Royal Mint said this coin would be released in September 2017, reports of circulated coins surfaced on the 22nd June 2017 and many popped up in the South West region, the Mint still denied they where released maybe by mistake? they confirmed two days later that it is indeed out in the wild!
Sir Isaac Newton is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution. He changed our understanding of mathematics and physics, redefined the way we see the world and shaped the security of our currency in his role as Master of the Mint. Designed by Aaron West, this 50p coin has been issued to commemorate the achievements of Sir Isaac Newton and remembers the legacy he left.
