JUST 4,995 Available: Limited Edition Discovery of Insulin 50p Display Card

** No longer available at The Royal Mint **

As part of the Innovation in Science 50p series, a 50p was released to commemorate 100 years since the discovery of insulin.

Saving millions of lives around the world and triggering a century of diabetes research, the discovery of insulin in 1921 by Sir Frederick G Banting, Charles H Best and JJR Macleod was one of the greatest medical breakthroughs in history.

This 50p, designed by Iris De La Torre, features an artistic interpretation of the structure of insulin along with its molecular formula — honouring a century of ground-breaking insulin research.
