2020 Music Legends Elton John Five Pound Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder Best Of Edition

UK20E4BU 2020 Music Legends Elton John Best Of £5 Crown Brilliant Uncirculated In Folder Packaging
from
£11.00
This brilliant uncirculated Elton John £5 coin is issued in special edition packaging from The Royal Mint. This Music Legends coin is the second release in the popular series and celebrates one of Britain's most iconic musicians - Sir Elton John. Originally Reginald Dwight, Sir Elton showcased amazing musical talent from a very young age, teaching himself to play the piano aged 3 and by 15 working as a pianist in a pub. His collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin propelled him to global stardom, and the singer-songwriter has released over 30 studio albums over his career. Sir Elton's fashion sense is legendary, and is represented perfectly on the coin's reverse. The designer, Bradley Morgan Johnson, won a competition for the coin's reverse design and Sir Elton personally approved it. Johnson picked three items to showcase on the reverse which most associates with Sir Elton: the iconic boating hat, sunglasses in the shape of a musical note and the iconic bow tie. The text 'ELTON JOHN' is sandwiched between the sunglasses and the bow tie. This design is paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, which is the fifth definitive UK coin portrait of Her Majesty. The cupronickel coin weighs 28.28 grams and measures 38.61 millimetres in diameter. It's fitted in a protective capsule which is housed in a limited edition Royal Mint folder, with just 15,000 issued in this presentation.
