QUEEN 2020 Music Legends UK £2 one ounce silver coin BU
The first coin in the series features one of the most iconic rock bands of all time. Formed in London in the early 1970s, Queen augmented their hard rock sound with pop sensibilities, redefining the genre and elevating it to another level. Recording a string of smash hits, fans flocked to see them live, their foot-stomping anthems and epic ballads delivered with panache by their flamboyant frontman, tragically gone too soon.
The coin commemorates all four members of Queen, in recognition of their contributions to the band’s success. This is done through the portrayal of each member’s instrument, with the Bechstein™ grand piano – which Freddie Mercury played for Bohemian Rhapsody – featuring at the top of the coin. Meanwhile, the group’s logo is placed at the centre of the design and is underscored by the singer’s signature mic stick. 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.
