    Ever fancied owning a silver depiction of a pox ridden goat like creature with rotating boar tusks?
    Today is your lucky day, because The European Mint has just taken physical delivery of their stock and that means we can included them in this (what will no doubt be) a pretty intensive group order. 
    For the avoidance of doubt....
    It's Yale time!!

    The Peter Rabbit coin is supposed to have a mintage of 1,000 for the silver proof with a household limit of 400. They are making 14 gold proofs with a household limit of 6. They are on sale from 4.15am.

    OK, so, this is going to be a simplified version (theoretical physics was never my specialism, I was more an astrophysics kinda gal.
    Basically black holes tend to screw with the normal laws of physics. In particular the second law of thermodynamics.
    Most of us learned in school that energy can't really be created or destroyed, only transferred. That's the essence of thermodynamics. But it can also be expressed in terms of entropy (entropy is kinda screwy but basically can be thought of as the amount of disorder in the universe) so you can't really create or destroy entropy, only transfer it (crude example, I can neatly line up some rocks, but it takes energy to do that, so the universe hasn't become overall more or less ordered).
    Anyway, black holes really screw with this because it's basically a hole. Whatever falls into it is basically "lost" which is bad because it messes with the thermodynamic laws that say that the amount of order in a closed system is constant.
    Bekenstein theorised that the only way to explain this contradiction would be if the back holes themselves had some entropy (ie they're not just holes but have some level of order/disorder to them). Hawking's contribution to this was to theorise that black holes actually spit out radiation (Hawking radiation). The formula expresses these quantities mathematically (i.e. the entropy of the black hole is balanced by the radiation it emits).
    It's a bit abstract but it's important because it means that black holes aren't actually breaking the laws of thermodynamics. Which is good because frankly physicists have enough other things to clarify around the fringes of the current standard models, so having this bit make sense is really helpful.

    I think the main thing that annoys me collector is, I couldn’t get a coin yesterday but lot on here buy 2/4/6/8 coins and sell for double price within a few hours, don’t blame poeole for making a profit but the royal mint should think about the end buyers, they should limit it 1 per house hold and should limit what they sell to dealers.     They seem to have forgotten the man on the street and gone all cooperate

    Total farce! The problem we have in this country is the regular changes in government with the same irresponsible windbags concerned only to gratify their own ambitions during their brief interval in power, at the same time sucking up to Billionaire newspaper moguls in order to manipulate and control public opinion. The whole debacle is one giant sham.

    Hawking was one of the giants of the last 100 years! Whether or not you agree with his theoretical works (and he was the first to admit when he was proved wrong) he taught us about the chance of the existence of God, global warming, the AI threat, about the creation of the universe, the nature of time (e.g. the arrow of time), the importance of exploring the universe so that humans can endure the possibility of an extinction event such as a meteor. He was our link with NASA, with CERN, he inspired Richard Branson and others to aim for the stars.
    Through him Britain once again had one of the most famous scientists in the world, charting the direction for much research and popular opinion. It's only fitting imo that his ashes are interred in Westminster Abbey between Newton and Darwin, and that he died on the birthdate of Einstein.
    There was quite a lot of talk that he had died and been replaced, it even made it into the Mail a few months before his passing. Had he died, a cynic would suggest there was every reason to replace him. I've had a look this morning for the article, I actually read it a short while back so no doubt it's still online, but I got distracted by other interesting stories. One about how his appearance on The Simpsons may have predicted one of his later theories (don't get that one, how bizarre!). An article about how he visited Stringfellows, and Stringfellow himself wanted to discuss the nature of the universe, but Hawking said he was only there for the girls
    I think my favourite story though (for those who say he died in the 80s!) was in 1992 when he disproved the possibility of time travel by throwing a party and only sending out invites afterwards. No-one turned up. Genius! He even invited time travellers to his service, again none turned up (not openly at least)!
    I'm very interested in this coin both for the subject matter and to see how the market reacts to the next gold proof 50p, though thinking more about it the interest in the scientific community, even among his peers and students alone, surely makes the mintage of this look absolutely tiny (?).
