Sir. Isaac Newton 2017 UK 50p Silver Proof Piedfort Coin Coin Quality

When Sir Isaac Newton came to The Royal Mint Britain's finances were approaching crisis, with up to one in ten coins thought to be fake.

His vision of matchless quality led him to root out and prosecute well-known counterfeiters, enhance assaying strategies (the way coin quality is checked), and fine-tune weights and measures to requirements never ever seen prior to.

In 1699 Newton ended up being Master of the Mint. After managing the brand-new coinage for the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 he also supervised the huge task 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 stay unique in their accuracy and purity to this day.

This double-thickness Piedfort coin is struck in 925 sterling silver to Proof quality. It marks the 375th anniversary of Newton's birth and is available in a Limited Edition Presentation of 3,000 coins.
