As part of its policy to celebrate some of the United Kingdom’s most important artists – individuals and bands who have helped shape Britons’ love of music in 2020, The Royal Mint is releasing official coins commemorating Sir Elton John.
The coins range from a face value of £5 to £1,000 gold.
“No such collection would make sense without the inclusion of Elton John, the superstar who has been delighting fans for more than half a century,” the Royal Mint said in a statement.
The coin was designed by Bradley Morgan Johnson, depicting the performer wearing his famous music-note glasses and straw boater’s hat.
The legendary pop musician has made more than 4,000 performances in over 80 countries and sold in excess of 300 million records worldwide.
