Elton John has been honored with his very own commemorative coin. The coin was released yesterday by Britain’s Royal Mint and is part of its Music Legends series.
The coin, designed by artist Bradley Morgan Johnson, features a straw boater hat, bow tie and glasses in the shape of music notes, which is inspired by a classic Elton image. It also features a Union Jack flag in the background.
“It really is a fabulous honor to be recognized in this way,” Elton shares. “The last few years have contained some of the most memorable moments of my career, and this is another truly humbling milestone on my journey.”
The coins come in a variety of materials, including Gold proof, Silver proof and Brilliant Uncirculated, and range in price from $16 for the Brilliant Uncirculated, and over $80K for the Gold.
