2020 Great Britain 1 oz Silver Music Legends: Elton John BU
Music Legends: is a new collection 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 second coin in the series features one of the most iconic legends of all time. With a career spanning more than 50 years, the new coin to celebrate Elton John’s legacy has been designed by artist Bradley Morgan Johnson.
Elton John said of the design: “It really is a fabulous honour to be recognised in this way. The last few years have contained some of the most memorable moments of my career, and this is another truly humbling milestone on my journey.
Features unmistakable Elton John iconography, using musical notes to create an image of glasses and a straw boater’s hat, inspired by one of Elton John’s most iconic looks, and a union Jack flag background punctuates the design. We’re particularly impressed with the new microtext boundary holding a repeating date and composition inscription. A terrific way to make them less conspicuous, while enhancing the battle against counterfeiting.
On the obverse of the coin we find the Jody Clark effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
