Music Legend, David Bowie, features on a UK coin!

As a global sensation with record sales estimated at over 100 million – making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time – it seems only fitting that Bowie is the next Music Legend to feature in The Royal Mint’s £5 series.

The Design

Acclaimed artist, Jody Clark has created a reverse design inspired by the late 1970’s period of Bowie’s life, when the star lived and recorded in Berlin.

A dynamic lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era sits behind the portrait of Bowie as he sheds his various personae to reinvent himself – a skill which he continued to perfect for decades to come.
