From a sold-out limited edition of just 500! This 2oz silver proof coin is the first release in the Royal Mint's Music Legends series. Struck to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the rock band Queen, it's the first time ever that a British rock band has featured on UK coinage. Formed in 1970 in London, Queen have had an immeasurable impact on the world of music, revolutionising recording techniques and stage performances. With vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, John Deacon on bass and drummer Roger Taylor, the band became one of the biggest bands in history, selling over 250 million records. Designed by artist Chris Facey, the reverse of this commemorative UK coin pays tribute to all four Queen members. There's a piano for Mercury, a guitar for May, a drum for Taylor, and a bass guitar for Deacon. The word 'QUEEN' is positioned prominently in the centre of the coin, underlined with a microphone stand. To complement this attractive reverse, the other side of the coin features the fifth definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This highly collectable piece is made from 62.42 grams of 999 fine silver and boasts an attractive proof finish, demonstrating the craftsmanship for which the UK's national mint is renowned. You'll receive this 2020 Queen Music Legends coin in its original presentation case from The Royal Mint with its numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
