Fans of Sir Elton John may still be reeling from his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour and retirement announcement.
But some relief may be found in The Royal Mint’s announcement to produce a series of coins that pay tribute to his legacy.
In his time, Elton John has made more than 4,000 performances and sold over 300 million records worldwide. Producing an incredible number of hit singles, Elton is undoubtedly one of the world’s truly great music superstars.
The legal tender coins come in 99.9% pure gold, silver and non-precious metal and feature his iconic glasses and straw boater hat on the reverse side.
Sir Elton is pleased to have his contribution to the music industry recognised this way. "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", he said.
Downies has secured a small allocation of the collection as an official distributor for the Royal Mint, so get in quick and secure yours today!
