The Royal Mint is to commemorate 50p Stephen Hawking's commemoration, according to the coin experts at Change Checker.
The 50p will have a black hole design, and will have the name of the famous British physicist.
Coin collectors could get his hands on him as early as next month, as he is said to be released on Thursday, March 14, revealing experts at Coin Hunter.
This date would coincide with the anniversary of his death.
"As a major innovator in its field and one of Britain's most famous scientists in the past, it is a great tribute to the fact that Stephen Hawking should be issued with a new base.
“His pioneering ideas on the operation of the universe can be seen as a significant contribution to humanity, enabling the complexities of physics to be reintroduced daily,” says Change Checker.
As with other commemorative coins, it will be excavated on gold coins, silver standard, silver piedfort and cupro-nickel coins.
The physicist will be one of only three British people to have won a silver medal within one year of his death, along with Winston Churchill and Queen Mother.
Stephen Hawking died at his home in Cambridge on Wednesday, 14 March. He was 76 years old and he suffered a life battle with motor neurone disease.
In 2017, the Royal Mint celebrated the life and works of another famous British physicist, Sir Isaac Newton, with a 50p base.
At the time, the manufacturer issued four-piece 50p special edition coins, with prices up to £ 750 for the gold proof version.
Isaac Newton was more famous because of gravity law.
The Royal Mint is not yet confirming the release of the commemorative medal Stephen Hawkings.
