Limited edition Alan Turing 50p coin in brilliant uncirculated condition. In 2022, the Royal Mint issued a set of commemorative Fifty Pence coins to mark 100 years since the birth of the wartime codebreaker, Alan Turing. It's part of the Mint's Innovation in Science 50 Pence coin series. During the Second World War, Turing worked at the top-secret Bletchley Park facility which ended up cracking the supposedly 'unbreakable' enigma code used by Nazi Germany. The Cambridge mathematician's leadership on this covert front has been widely credited to bringing the war to an end 2-4 years earlier than otherwise would have been, and saving millions of lives. Codebreaking was what Turing was known for, and this theme is displayed on this UK 50 Pence. Matthew Dent and Christian Davies jointly designed the coin's reverse side; they have displayed the rotating drum used on the bombes in Bletchley Park with encrypted code in the background. The text reads 'ALAN TURING' on the outside ring of the cog. On the other side, the obverse shows Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Jody Clark. It's the fifth effigy of Her Majesty on UK coinage. The cupro-nickel piece weighs 8.00 grams and measures 27.30 millimetres in diameter. To appeal to collectors, the coin is struck twice to give a BU finish which is a better standard than the coins you'll find in your change. You'll receive your pre-owned Alan Turing 50p in its original packaging which comprises of a collectable Royal Mint slipcase in which the coin is encased in a protective capsule. A fitting tribute to one of Britain's unsung wartime heroes.
