Speculation in the collecting community has been brewing for months about the next British star to be honoured in The Royal Mint’s hall of fame that is the Music Legends series.
And now collectors and fans will surely be rejoicing from Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads, and perhaps even on Mars, as the next Music Legend to feature on a BRAND NEW UK coin has been confirmed to be none other than the Starman himself, David Bowie!
From Space Oddity to Life on Mars? there is no denying that David Bowie is one of the most iconic and influential British musicians to have ever graced our stages. Known for his reinvention, he was a fearless, creative, inspirational icon that changed the lives of so many people.
Here at The Westminster Collection we cannot think of a better way to celebrate his contribution to British music and his lasting legacy than with a coin.
And what a coin it is – keep on reading to see the spectacular design for yourself!

David Bowie Coin
The design of the new David Bowie coin is a real tribute to the king of glam rock. The main talking point of this 1oz Pure Silver Proof coin is without a doubt the coloured element. The red and blue lightning bolt motif is instantly recognisable from the Aladdin Sane era and is synonymous with the musician.
Interestingly, I’d say that this is the FIRST pop culture themed coin I can think of that features a portrait – until now portraits on coins 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.
