Sir. Isaac Newton 2017 UK 50p Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Coin Quality

When Sir Isaac Newton joined The Royal Mint, Britain's finances were approaching crisis. Up to one in ten circulating coins were thought to be forged. His vision of matchless quality led him to root out and prosecute well-known counterfeiters, enhance assaying techniques (the method coin quality is examined) and improve weights and procedures to requirements never seen prior to.

In 1699 Newton became Master of the Mint. After managing the brand-new coinage for the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 he went on to supervise the process of bringing Scottish coinage into line with English coinage, following the Union of England and Scotland in 1707. Thanks to Newton's vision Royal Mint coins remain incomparable in their accuracy and pureness to this day.

This 50p coin is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. It marks the 375th anniversary of Newton's birth.
