Secure the Charles Babbage UK 50p in Silver Proof Quality

Charles Babbage was a revolutionary inventor and mathematician  his ideas were a century ahead of their time.

2021 marked the 150th anniversary of his death and in honour of this important event, Charles Babbage has been celebrated on a UK coin for the very FIRST TIME.

This coin is expertly struck from .925 Silver to a Proof finish by The Royal Mint. The reverse design, illustrated by creator’s Nigel Tudman and Jas Bhamra, celebrates Babbage’s scientific legacy, linking his machinery to the digital age.

This is the FOURTH coin in The Royal Mint’s hugely popular Innovation in Science 50p series, following in the footsteps of Rosalind Franklin and John Logie Baird.

JUST 3,500 issued worldwide  another SELL-OUT pending

When the first Innovation in Science coin was released  the Stephen Hawking 50p  the entire edition limit of 5,500 SOLD OUT in record
time  just a matter of hours. Likewise, the second coin in the series also followed suit and quickly SOLD OUT.

It’s clear, 3,500 Charles Babbage Silver 50ps will not last long either.


It’s inevitable that many collectors will miss out on this new issue. Make sure you’re not one of them by taking urgent action today.

The good news is you can add it to your collection today for The Royal Mint’s official issue price of JUST £57.50 (+p&p).
