My Gift Is My Coin And This One’s For You! Elton John Honored With UK Commemorative Coin

Sir Elton John has become the latest British music legend to be honored with a special commemorative coin from the UK’s Royal Mint.

The coin will be minted in gold and silver editions. It will also feature Sir Elton’s signature straw hat and a pair of music notes as his iconic sunglasses. 

“It really is a fabulous honor to be recognized in this way,” John said. “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.”

In addition to the gold and silver minted £5 coins, the Mint is working on a special one-off coin that will be auctioned later this year. The proceeds will go to the Elton John Charitable Trust.

It’s the second installment of the Royal Mint’s new ‘Music Legends’ series, after Queen was honored with a coin back in January.
