Commemorating one of the greatest scientists of our age

Uniting the fields of general relativity and quantum mechanics, Stephen Hawking continued the work of Albert Einstein to make a series of astonishing discoveries. His work on black holes led him to think bigger, encapsulating the history of the universe in a single equation – a unifying theory of everything. In this exciting new series of coins, the great innovators of British science are celebrated in turn. This superior silver Proof piedfort coin is a fitting tribute to Hawking, one of the most brilliant scientists of modern times.
