Product description

The third legend of British popular music to appear on commemorative coins from The Royal Mint's collector's series is David Bowie.

David Bowie was a singer, actor, composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, writer, painter and sculptor, but above all a visionary, pioneer and prophet
. Every eye was different and his music was equally contrasting. He seemed to be a superficial flunky who composed songs easily, yet worked hard until death. The critics revered him as a serious artist, his fans swooned at the sight of him. David Bowie's albums still sound great, his ideas and lyrics are still modern and fresh. In fact, he imprinted everything he touched with his enormous and unmistakable charisma.

The reverse side of the coin, which is the work of artist
Jody Clark, is dominated by a faithful portrait of David Bowie from the time spend in West Berlin. Additional motifs - a lightning bolt inspired by the Aladdin Sane album, glittering stars and a dynamic inscription - symbolise Bowie's dazzling career. The obverse side of the coin bears the attributes of the issuer - i.e. the nominal value of 5 POUNDS (GBP), the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the text "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) and the year of issue 2020.

The coin includes a
special packaging full of photographs and interesting facts (in English).
