2022 Alan Turing 50p Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

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.

Alan Turing is famed for his leading role in deciphering Nazi messages during the Second World War — saving the lives of millions.

Now, this new UK 50p coin features three codes of its own. Can you decipher them?
