A wonderful coin for one of the greatest scientists of all time
I purchased three coins. My shipment arrived much more quickly than I had anticipated. The packaging was solid and my 3 coins were nestled perfectly safe inside, in perfectly pristine condition. The inserts were fantastic and full of facts and information about both Stephen Hawkings life and work. I am so pleased with the quality of the coin and the leaflets- they were simply and beautifully done.
Great Coin to add to my collection here in Canada. Excellent Shipping and Packaging. Arrived undamaged and in pristine condition.
Really amazing and memorable coin for such an inspiring and amazing man.

The Royal Mint have issued this coin to mark the one year anniversary of Stephen Hawking’s passing on 14th March 2018 but to also celebrate his life and contributions to science.
Struck by The Royal Mint to a pristine Brilliant Uncirculated finish, the reverse features a design by Edwina Ellis, which has been approved by the Hawking Estate. It depicts a swirling black hole and showcases his most famous scientific equation relating to black holes. This was his crowning achievement, and requested it be inscribed on his gravestone.
Commemorative coins released to mark a death are usually issued at landmark anniversaries, but this tribute to the great late physicist has been issued less than a year after his passing, by two days.
This makes it potentially the fastest issued commemorative marking a death. Because of the remarkable speed at which it has been issued, this coin is likely to be in high demand.
Your coin will arrive in its official Royal Mint presentation pack.
