Secure the UK Rosalind Franklin 50p BU Pack

Rosalind Franklin is one of Britain’s best scientific minds. Without her ground-breaking research we would not understand the complexities of DNA as we do today.

To mark the 100th anniversary of her birth, and to celebrate her legacy, The Royal Mint authorised for a UK 50p to be issued – the second coin in the Innovation in Science series.

It features a striking design by David Knapton, that puts Rosalind Franklin at the heart of the DNA story. It depicts the infamous Photograph 51 that led Franklin to her discovery that DNA has a double helix structure – the same picture that was used by Watson and Crick, robbing Franklin of the accolades that were rightly hers.

This coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so you know it will be free from any of the marks or blemishes you would find on coins in your change. It comes beautifully presented in Royal Mint packaging and is available at The Royal Mint issue price of JUST £10 (+p&p).

Don’t delay, secure your Rosalind Franklin 50p BU Pack today – just click ‘Add to basket’.
