As the father of modern computing and a codebreaking genius during the Second World War, Alan Turing was a truly extraordinary individual. In recent years, Turing has become a figurehead for gay rights following his posthumous pardon from Her Majesty The Queen in 2013, which has since led to further pardons to gay men and created what’s become known as ‘Turing’s Law’. In 2022, we celebrate a man with a remarkable mind with a UK 50p coin that concludes our Innovation in Science series.

For a man who passed away far too young, Alan Turing’s ingenuity and intellect both still have an enduring impact in the fields of computing, mathematics and science today. His groundbreaking theories remain revered to this very day, which suggests he was a genius way ahead of his time. Recently honoured by the Bank of England with a portrait on a new £50 banknote, this is the first UK coin to commemorate the life and legacy of Alan Turing.

This UK 50p coin comes in a variety of editions, including a gold Proof, silver Proof, silver Proof Piedfort and Brilliant Uncirculated edition.
