DAVID BOWIE 2020 UK Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin
DAVID BOWIE 2020 UK Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin: is the third coin from The Royal Mint paying tribute to the bands and artists whose attitude, sound and look came to define each passing decade – a legacy perfectly encapsulated in each coin design.
The third coin in the series features David Bowie. Born in Brixton, South London, in 1947, David Bowie began life as David Robert Jones. By the time he was 19 he had taken on his iconic name and was taking the first steps in one of the most innovative and influential careers in the history of sound and vision. His music electrified generations, and his perpetual state of reinvention kept music fans enthralled. (see our Fender coin collection)
This 1/4oz gold proof version sold out from the Royal Mint within days of release (as with all former issues in the series).
The third coin in our Music Legends collection celebrates rock’s definitive chameleon with a design inspired by an image of the singer from his time spent living and recording in Berlin. The inclusion of the lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era captures Bowie’s career journey, and the moment he finally put aside the props to emerge as an artist in his own right.
On the obverse of the coin we find the Jody Clark effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
Your MUSIC LEGENDS: DAVID BOWIE 2020 UK Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin is presented in a standard Royal Mint black box with a themed shipper. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
