Music Legends is a new collection from The Royal Mint, paying tribute to the bands and artists whose attitude, sound and look came to define each passing decade – a legacy perfectly encapsulated in each coin design. This is the first time in history, where the iconic British band Queen has been featured on a UK coin.
Formed in London in the early 1970s, Queen augmented their hard rock sound with pop sensibilities, redefining the genre and elevating it to another level. Recording a string of smash hits, fans flocked to see them live, their foot-stomping anthems and epic ballads delivered with panache by their flamboyant frontman, tragically gone too soon.
Hugely anticipated by coin collectors and music fans, the 1/2 oz 99.9% pure silver coin 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.
Packed in a printed acrylic block, creating the effect of a vintage vinyl, this piece makes the perfect gift for all fans of Queen!
