The Royal Mint has today (1 December) launched a new collectable coin celebrating The Rolling Stones.
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. The latest coin follows designs in honour of music icons Queen, Elton John, David Bowie, and The Who and has become one of The Royal Mint’s most popular global coin collections.
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.
“Our Music Legends series is creating a new generation of coin collectors, and we are delighted to honour The Rolling Stones’ musical achievements with this new collectable coin,” commented Rebecca Morgan, director of collector services at The Royal Mint. We hope this provides a fitting tribute to the band’s 60 years of rock and roll music for their millions of fans across the globe. With a list of hits that includes eight UK number one singles, 13 UK number one albums, and countless hits internationally, The Rolling Stones are UK rock legends, and we anticipate this coin being incredibly sought-after by coin collectors and music lovers alike.
“The coin is also one of the last to be released bearing the effigy of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, marking a significant moment in history.”
The deal was secured with The Royal Mint by Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company.
