And finally… Royal mint
The Royal Mint has revealed a new coin dedicated to the band Queen.
The coin is the first in The Royal Mint’s Music Legends collection paying tributes to bands and artists whose attitude, sound and look came to define each passing decade – a legacy perfectly encapsulated in each coin design.
Hugely anticipated by coin collectors and music fans alike, Queen are celebrated with a design that features the iconic instruments played by each founding member: Brian May’s Red Special guitar, John Deacon’s Fender Precision bass, Roger Taylor’s Ludwig bass drum and Freddie Mercury’s Bechstein grand piano with the opening notes of Bohemian Rhapsody pressed down.
Alongside a gold Proof, silver Proof and standard Brilliant Uncirculated edition, the BU coin is also available in three different slipcase covers exclusive to The Royal Mint– a fitting tribute to the career of one of Britain’s best-loved bands.
The coins in the range are priced from as low as £13 to £2,0200.
