What Is The Royal Mint's Music Legends?

UK-born recording artists have been dominating and transforming the world of popular music for decades, gaining a legendary status and devoted fans. It's tough to pick the best British acts – it's a topic of much debate in the BCC office – but The Royal Mint's Music Legends series provides a whistle-stop tour of the greats, celebrated on officially licensed legal tender UK coinage.

The Mint pressed play on Music Legends in 2020 with a collection featuring rock band Queen and continued a steady beat of releases through the year with a range of Elton John coinage followed by a David Bowie drop. The Who became the fourth release in the series in 2021 and we've been eagerly anticipating the next issue ever since.

The Greatest Rock Band In The World

The fifth release in the Music Legends series is dedicated to The Rolling Stones, struck to coincide with their sixtieth anniversary.

The Stones were formed in London in 1962, quickly becoming known for a hard rock sound, influenced by the blues, that still sells out stadiums today. Among the best-selling musical artists of all time, the band racked up a string of hit albums and singles that topped the UK charts. The legendary line-up has changed a bit over the years but original members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are still touring. Speaking about the new coin range the band said:

'We are delighted to be honoured by way of an official UK coin. Even more significant that the release coincides with our 60th anniversary'.

Reverse Design By Hannah Phizacklea

Hannah Phizacklea is the designer behind the reverse of these new commemorative coins.

Phizacklea studied at the University of Lincoln and was invited to submit a design for this collection. This is her first creation to be featured on official UK coinage. Her design is influenced by her Dad's love of rock 'n' roll and the blues as well watching videos of the band playing live. It shows the classic four-part line up, silhouetted by spotlights, performing to a crowd. Phizacklea has incorporated various textures for a multi-layered design.

'The Rolling Stones' appears above in the classic 1973 font, picked out with red colour printing on some editions of this coin. The anniversary dates - '62-'22 - appear below.

Final Portrait Of Queen Elizabeth II

Coins in the 2022 Rolling Stones collection are among the last collectible UK coins to be issued with a portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty passed away in September and was succeeded by her son, King Charles III.

Her fifth and final official UK coin portrait by Jody Clark - seen on the obverse of these Music Legends coins - will be replaced on forthcoming Royal Mint coins with the new bust of His Majesty by Martin Jennings.

The legend used on the obverse of Rolling Stones coins reads 'ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D ·' followed by the denomination.
