Royal Mint marks 100 years of insulin

The Royal Mint has released a commemorative, UK 50p coin to celebrate the 100th year since the discovery of insulin.

In tribute to the pioneering work of John Macleod, Sir Frederick Banting, and their expert team consisting of Charles Best and James Collip in 1921, the reverse design combines an artistic illustration of insulin’s molecular structure with its chemical symbol.

The groundbreaking discovery changed the landscape of diabetes treatment and turned it into a manageable condition, saving the lives of millions of people worldwide.
