Celebrate David Bowie’s legacy in Half Ounce Silver

From Space Oddity to Life on Mars? there is no denying that David Bowie’s music has helped shape the British music industry and now, he has been immortalised in The Royal Mint’s Music Legends series.

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

Iconic David Bowie design

This coin has been struck from half an ounce of .999 pure Silver to a perfect Proof finish and features a design by Jody Clark that depicts what is possibly the most iconic David Bowie image – the lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era.

It’s instantly recognisable as a tribute to the king of glam rock!

What’s more, it is the FIRST pop culture themed coin that features a portrait – until now portraits have been reserved for Royalty or prominent historical figures. This is incredibly unusual for a coin and means it will be sought-after by knowledgeable collectors.   

High demand expected ACT NOW

Considering the leagues of David Bowie fans across the world, The Royal Mint has made a surprising decision.

JUST 12,500 single coins that have been authorised for release – that’s almost certainly not enough for British collectors, let alone the worldwide interest guaranteed for this issue.

The good news is that you can secure this coin for The Royal Mint’s official issue price of JUST £65 (+p&p) today.
