I don't think the subject matter gave them much hope of making a decent design, it's not as if Hawking in his wheelchair was going to tranlate well to a coin so they were always going to go with some kind of science based theme, that design just looks like some dishwater swirling down the plug hole though.

Those were my thoughts too, it looks like a plug hole, not a black hole.

It means making a salad sandwich in zero gravity is a bad idea...

I’m not sure I am convinced by the Bekenstein-Hawking formula.

If we stick to the perceptively interesting illustration of the sandwich, when I eat one, it goes down the black hole of my throat, and it has got to come out somewhere.

Sometimes scientists seem to over-think things.

I think this will look great in the hand. Liking it more each time I look at it. Formula, name large, black hole. Does what it says on the tin and done with the approval of the Hawking Family Trust.
