A 50 pence has been issued to honour Stephen Hawking with a design inspired by his pioneering work on black holes.

The physicist died at the age of 76 on the 14th March 2018, having become one of the most renowned leaders in his field.

He joins an elite group of scientists to have appeared on coins, including Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

Designer Edwina Ellis said: “I wanted to fit a big black hole on the tiny coin and wish he was still here chortling at the thought.”

Professor Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease at just 22 years of age.

The illness left him in a wheelchair and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser, but he rose to serve as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University for 30 years.

Professor Hawking explained black holes in his best-selling book A Brief History Of Time.
