*** UPDATE ***
Following the Royal Proclamation on the 8th November, The Royal Mint have now confirmed there will be a Music Legends coin series!
It’s safe to assume Queen will be part of this series, but who else would you like to see on a Music Legends coin? Let us know in the comments below and sign up for updates at the bottom of the blog!
As of the Royal Proclamations issued on 8th November 2019, a very exciting United Kingdom £5 coin has been confirmed for 2020.
The reverse design is said to feature ‘a keyboard, drum, bass and electric guitar accompanied by a microphone and the inscription “QUEEN”‘.
This is the first time a band has been commemorated on a UK coin which makes this announcement particularly exciting.

Another coin The Royal mint rip iff its getting beyond a joke now, the prices are to high its killing coin collection slowly but surely
I’m not sure it can be called coin collecting anymore as many coins are only available to purchase. I guess as cash becomes increasingly redundant the Royal Mint have to find other ways to make money.
