Stephen Hawking
Stephen William Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA (8 January 1942 – 14 March 2018) was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge at the time of his death. He was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge between 1979 and 2009. His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.


The reverse of the coin depicts a wonderful representation of a black Hole, formed by many detailed spirals. On top of the reverse, a mathematic formula and the inscription: “STEPHEN HAWKING” – the name of the astrophysicist. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “D·G·REG·F·D” – the Latin acronym that stands for: Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor, “50 PENCE” – the face value and “2019” – the year of issue.
