The Music Legends Series kicks off with a coin honoring Queen, the British rock band formed in London in 1970. This coin has the first-ever design from Royal Mint Production Manager Chris Facey and uses edge-lettering. On the edge of the coin, you will find the names of the four original members of Queen: Mercury, Taylor, Deacon, and May.
On the obverse side of 2020 1 oz Proof British Music Legends Queen Silver Coins is the fifth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown commissioned in 1820.
The reverse field of the 2020 Proof British Music Legends Queen Silver Coins includes two guitars, a drum, a microphone, and a keyboard. The group name Queen is inscribed across the center of the design field. The group was a hit from the start in the UK, but hit it big internationally with the release of the album A Night at the Opera that included the classic hit Bohemian Rhapsody.
