For some voluntary work I did, The Royal Mint sent me a limited edition 22 carat gold coin which commemorates the life and legacy of the great mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing.

This included bespoke packaging that contained a small 'Innovation in Science' series booklet detailing Turing's remarkable achievements, and featured one of his most famous quotes:

We can see only a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done ~Alan Turing

I would like to express my thanks to The Royal Mint for this thoughtful gift.
