2020 Elton John Silver Proof Two Ounce £2
The second coin to be issued as part of the ‘Music Legends’ range by the Royal Mint. This is the first time a British solo artist has featured on a UK coin.
The solo artist Elton John features on the second of the ‘Music Legends’ issue. A design by Bradley Morgan Johnson depicts Elton John in a hat, bow tie with notation glasses. Jody Clarks fifth head portrayal of Queen Elizabeth can be seen on the obverse of the coin.
The £2 piece is made of pure silver (0.999 fine) and weighs 62.2 grams.
The coin comes in its original presentation box, complete with outer card sleeve and certificate of authenticity.
Only 500 pieces were issued by the Royal Mint.
The Royal Mint has issued a range of coins with the design, including a gold proof one kilo coin, gold proof two ounce, gold proof one ounce, gold proof quarter ounce, silver proof one ounce and a number of cupro nickel coin packs.
