Our Babbage coin released

Tuch are delighted to announce the issue of a commemorative 50p coin we designed for the Royal Mint.

This is the fourth coin in the Innovation in Science series, and the first of our coin designs to be approved for production.

We have been working with the Royal Mint and Royal Mint Museum for many years on various projects but this is the highlight of the relationship so far.

The coin commemorates the life and legacy of one of Britain’s greatest minds, Charles Babbage, on the 150th anniversary of his death. Babbage’s mechanical calculators helped to bring about the conceptual leap to modern computing.

You can find out more about Babbage and read an interview with Nigel on the inspiration behind our design on the link below.
