The Royal Mint Stephen Hawking 50p coin has been unveiled in the UK as a new piece of currency that pays homage to the late theoretical physicist and cosmologist in a striking way.
The coin is emblazoned with Hawking's name along with a black hole, which calls to mind the Hawking Radiation theory that is sure to entice collectors and cosmology enthusiasts alike. The coin is being issued as a commemorative edition, which means that it likely won't be able to be found in change when making a purchase.
The Royal Mint Stephen Hawking 50p coin is priced at £10 and has also been created in a silver edition as well as a gold edition that are likely to be coveted by collectors seeking to expand their collection.
