The Royal Mint launches new collectable coin to celebrate 60 years of The Rolling Stones

The Royal Mint, the official maker of UK coins, has launched a new collectable coin celebrating the iconic British rock and roll band, 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. 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 band's 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 with a silhouette illustration designed to reflect the energy and excitement of attending their gigs.

The 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."

Rebecca Morgan, Director of Collector Services at The Royal Mint, said: "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. We hope this provides a fitting tribute to the band's sixty years of rock and roll music for their millions of fans across the globe."

The Rolling Stones coin is available as limited-edition precious metal proof editions as well as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition. The Brilliant Uncirculated coin is also available in colour exclusive to The Royal Mint.
