2022 Niue 1 oz Silver Icons of Inspiration: Isaac Newton MS-70 NGC
The third release in the popular series of coins celebrating famous Icons of Inspiration features Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most influential mathematicians and physicists in history. Newton’s works in science are among humankind’s most researched and respected discoveries. Some of Newton’s countless discoveries, displayed in the unique design of this 2022 Silver MS-70 NGC coin, include his work with gravity, represented by the floating apple and celestial orbs, the creation of the 1718 Gold Quarter Guinea presented on the coin, and his discoveries involving prisms featured with light refracting through it.
Depicted by the prism on the coin’s obverse, Newton’s discovery of light prisms was groundbreaking because it helped to prove light is visible. Newton also used prisms to help him discover how color affects objects. He discovered the phenomenon after experimenting with prisms in his home in England. Newton started his experiment by placing a prism at either end of a beam of sunlight coming through a window on an upper floor in his home. He found that when he broke white light into its colors, each color had properties based upon their length and, when he separated the colors far enough, he found that putting them all back together would make white light.
