2022 Niue 1 oz Silver Icons of Inspiration: Isaac Newton in TEP
The third release in the APMEXclusive® series of coins celebrating Icons of Inspiration features Sir Isaac Newton, an important figure during the Enlightenment Era and a well-known mathematician and physicist whose works include some of the most studied appreciated discoveries of humankind. Some of his most prominent discoveries are detailed on the 2022 1 oz Silver coin include his work with prisms, gravity with the falling apple and cosmic orbs, and the 1718 Gold Quarter Guinea he created.
The design elements featured on this beautifully detailed coin that depict the floating apple and cosmic orbs held in motion are examples of Newton’s work with Gravitational Theory and his three Laws of Motion. Legend has it that Newton formulated his Gravitational Theory in 1665 or 1666 after watching an apple fall and asking why the apple fell straight down, rather than sideways or even upward. "He showed that the force that makes the apple fall and holds us on the ground is the same as the force that keeps the moon and planets in their orbits," said Martin Rees, a former president of Britain's Royal Society, the United Kingdom's National Academy of Science, which was once headed by Newton himself.
Following his apple insight, Newton developed the three Laws of Motion, which are:
- Newton's Law of Inertia: Every object persists in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it.
- Newton’s Law of Acceleration: Force is equal to the change in momentum (mV) per change in time. For a constant mass, force equals mass times acceleration [expressed in the famous equation F = ma].
- Newton's Law of Action and Reaction: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
