The coin depicts a kind of silhouette of the rock band at a concert.
The British rock band Rolling Stones will be honored with their own commemorative coin for their musical achievements. The design shows the silhouette of the group and is intended to reflect the energy of the appearance, as the British mint Royal Mint announced on Thursday. “We hope this is a fitting tribute to the band’s 60 year rock ‘n’ roll history for their millions of fans around the world,” said Royal Mint Director Rebecca Morgan. The coin is also one of the last to feature the profile of the late Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse.
The Rolling Stones (“Satisfaction”), founded in 1962, are the fifth British music great to be honored with a collector’s coin by the Royal Mint. This honor has previously been bestowed on bands Queen and The Who, as well as singers Elton John and David Bowie. The Stones were enthusiastic in a short reaction.
