BOLD is very pleased to present this fourth release of The Royal Mint’s spectacular series, British Music Legends. This stunning 2021 British Music Legends The Who 1oz Silver Proof coin celebrates the band’s remarkable contribution to Pop music.
As introduced by the Royal Mint,
"Our Music Legends collection showcases iconic acts from the nation’s diverse musical past and present. It’s not often that a band will span generations, but The Who, with their explosive performances, have been a part of Britain’s soundtrack for more than 50 years. Together, groundbreaking lead guitarist Pete Townshend, microphone-twirling Roger Daltrey, John ‘The Ox’ Entwistle, and maverick drummer Keith Moon challenged genres, broke records and thrilled fans with their unique style.
Artist Henry Gray has included some of the most iconic symbols from the band’s live and loud performances in his design. A Union flag, mod logo and speaker-smashing Rickenbacker guitar all feature in the form of a pinball table, which is a nod to Tommy, one of the band’s most famous creations."
This premium, limited edition colorized proof offering includes an elegant display case with a themed shipper and Certificate of Authenticity. With a very limited mintage of only 8,010 for worldwide distribution, you will need to reserve your desired quantity quickly.
