The Rolling Stones Featured in New Coin Collection by The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint will honor The Rolling Stones with a new collectible coin celebrating 60 years of the iconic British rock band.
The Rolling Stones collectable coin is the fifth in The Royal Mint’s ‘Music Legends’ series, which celebrates legendary British artists through original new designs. This latest coin follows designs in honor of Queen, Elton John, David Bowie, and The Who. The coin is also one of the last to be released bearing the effigy of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
“We are delighted to be honoured by way of an official UK coin. Even more significant that the release coincides with our 60th anniversary,” said the band in a statement.
Designed by Hannah Phizacklea, the coin brings together elements of The Stones’ instruments, stage presence, heritage and fashion to celebrate the global impact of their music. The bespoke coin captures the band in their element, mid-performance via a silhouette illustration designed to reflect the energy and excitement of attending their gigs, according to a release.
