2020 British Music Legends David Bowie 1oz Silver Proof
BOLD is very pleased to present this third release of The Royal Mint’s spectacular new series, British Music Legends. This stunning 2020 British Music Legends David Bowie 1oz Silver Proof coin celebrates the artist’s remarkable contribution to Pop music. And what a stellar legacy the "Star Man" built through his incredible, imaginative musical gifts, and his unique ability to recreate his style and presentation throughout his lengthy career!
David Bowie – The Star Who Fell to Earth
As noted by The Royal Mint,
"David Bowie is one of British music’s most enduring icons and the influence of this fearless and singular visionary, whose unabashed otherness struck a global chord, can still be felt and heard today. As we issue a new coin celebrating his remarkable legacy, we look back at a career spanning more than half a century."
The third coin in our Music Legends collection celebrates rock’s definitive chameleon with a design inspired by an image of the singer from his time spent living and recording in Berlin. The inclusion of the lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era captures Bowie’s career journey, and the moment he finally put aside the props to emerge as an artist in his own right.
Like Lightning Striking – Bowie!
The reverse features a remarkably detailed, left-facing profile of Bowie. Behind his profile a large colorized lightning bolt is depicted streaking down. The selective colorized red, black, and blue of the lightning bolt strikingly highlights this great design! The background also displays a starfield filling the upper left. A "BOWIE" logo is displayed at the lower right. This 2020 British Music Legends David Bowie 1oz Silver Proof edition is truly a stunning presentation and worthy of Bowie’s legacy.
As a legal tender offering by the UK, the obverse of the coin displays the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include "2 POUNDS . 2020 . ELIZABETH II D. G. REG. F. D."
