RARE specification – UK 2020 Queen Silver Proof £1 Coin

Since exploding on to the British music scene in the 1970’s, Queen have sealed themselves as one of the most influential and beloved bands in the world.

 UK coin has been released to commemorate one of the most influential and beloved bands in the world Queen. This is the first time in history the band features on a coin.  

Significantly this new coin has been issued in a range of specifications, including a RARE Half Ounce Silver Proof coin.

Iconic design for an iconic band

This coin has been struck from half an ounce of .999 pure silver to a perfect proof finish, and features the first ever coin design by Chris Facey. The design is sure to delight Queen fans as it features the iconic instruments of the classic line-up.

Plus, eagle eyed collectors will also notice the piano has the opening notes of what’s considered by many as one of the greatest rock songs ever written, Bohemian Rhapsody, pressed down.

RARE specification

What’s most significant about this coin though, is its specification. That’s because the Half Ounce Silver Proof specification is very rare, and tends to be reserved only for flagship Britannia issues. And even then it is often reserved as part of a fractional set, not available as a single issue.

High demand expected

Given that three out of the four precious metal specifications in the Queen coin range SOLD OUT within just 24 hours, you'll need to act quickly if you'd like secure this brand new coin for your collection. 

Especially as JUST 17,500 UK Queen Half Ounce Silver Proof coins have been authorised for release worldwide.

This is a surprising decision from The Royal Mint, as that’s almost certainly not enough for British collectors. And it’s definitely not enough for the worldwide interest that is guaranteed for this issue. Especially as OVER 55% have already been reserved at the Mint.
