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”‘.

      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.
