The original members of Queen were Roger Taylor, Brian May, Freddie Mercury, and John Deacon. Taylor and May were performing together in the 1960s in a band known as Smile when Freddie Mercury connected up with the duo. A fan of their music, Mercury encouraged them to try out new staging and recording techniques to take their music and performances to a new level. Mercury joined the duo in 1970 to form Queen, with the trio later recruiting John Deacon in 1971 as the bass guitarist.
Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse side of the 2020 1 oz British Music Legends Queen Gold Coins. This is the fifth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to feature on British coins in her reign. Created in July 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait shows the Queen in right-profile relief at the age of 89 against a background field with a guilloche design element.
Musical instruments are showcased in the reverse design element of 2020 British Music Legends Queen Gold Coins. This design element includes a keyboard along the top of the design field, a microphone and stand through the middle, and two guitars flanking a drum at the bottom of the design field. The name “Queen” is inscribed across the center of the design element.
