Professor Stephen Hawking Coins

To mark one year since the death of Stephen Hawking on 14th March 2018, The Royal Mint issued a commemorative coin in March 2019 celebrating his life and significant contributions to science.

It was the fastest ever issued commemorative coin from The Royal Mint making it a notable collectable which was in high demand upon its launch.

The commemorative design will never be released into general circulation so can only be acquired as a commemorative collector’s issue uncirculated pack. This is the first coin in a series celebrating innovators in science and another highly collectable 50p coin from The Royal Mint.
