The fourth coin in the UK’s Innovation in Science 50p series commemorates computer pioneer, Charles Babbage in the year marking the 150th anniversary of his death.
This 50p, designed by Nigel Tudman and Jas Bhamra, features a clever design which links Babbage’s extraordinary machinery to the digital age.
Babbage designed the first automatic computing machine, known as the Difference Engine, in the 1820s. His great work has shaped the lives we live today, earning him the title, ‘Father of Computers’.
Charles Babbage now joins the likes of Stephen Hawking, Rosalind Franklin and John Logie Baird as some of the greatest Innovators in Science to be featured on UK coins!
