Britain has helped shape the world of popular music for decades dating back to the mid-twentieth century. Providing some of the most talented artists to ever grace the industry, the UK has undoubtedly been a breeding ground for musical talent and artistic excellence. From piano-playing showmen to guitar-wielding rock gods and everything in between, the list of talented Brits to achieve legendary status across the globe includes some of the biggest names in music history. The Music Legends series honours a select few of these names by immortalising them on UK coinage. In January 2020, Queen were unveiled as the inaugural design in this revolutionary collection, becoming the first band to be celebrated on an official UK coin. Celebrate the greatest artists to ever emerge from the UK with this commemorative series dedicated to Britain’s greatest musical performers.
