Description

Known for pioneering the creation of both the ‘Difference Engine’ and ‘Analytical Engine’, Charles Babbage was central to the inception of computers as a modern form of technology. Regarding the latter, Babbage’s Analytical Engine was the first machine ever designed with the idea of programming, and inspired others to develop modern inventions. In celebration of his life, The Royal Mint has produced this Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coin that marks 150 years since his passing. This is the latest coin in the Innovation in Science series, and features a reverse design created by Nigel Tudman and Jas Bhamra which connects his machinery to the digital age. The Obverse features Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, illustrating its legal tender status. Having never been featured on a UK coin before, this edition is a must have for any science, technology or computing enthusiast.
