UK mint launches Rolling Stones anniversary coin

The Royal Mint has today launched a new collectable coin celebrating the iconic British rock and roll band – The Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones 2022 UK GBP5 Brilliant Uncirculated coin colour reverse.

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 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.

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.

“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.,” said Rebecca Morgan, the mint’s director of collector services. “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,” she added.

In a release, te band said, “We are delighted to be honoured by way of an official UK coin. Even more significant that the release coincides with our 60th anniversary”.

A legendary act with cross-generational appeal, The Rolling Stones are one of the biggest-selling acts in British music history and are hailed by many as ‘The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World’.
