Sir. Isaac Newton 2017 UK 50p Gold Proof Coin Coin Quality

When Sir Isaac Newton joined The Royal Mint, Britain's finances were approaching crisis, with approximately one in ten distributing coins believed to be forged.

His vision of incomparable quality led him to root out and prosecute notorious counterfeiters, enhance assaying methods (the way coin quality is inspected), and improve weights and measures to standards never ever seen before. In 1699 Newton became Master of the Mint. After supervising the new coinage for the accession of Queen Anne in 1702, he likewise supervised the huge job 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 unrivalled in their accuracy and pureness to this day.

This 50p coin is struck in 22 carat gold to Proof requirement. It marks the 375th anniversary of Newton's birth and is available in a Limited Edition Presentation of 500 coins.
