Amazingly Detailed David Bowie Rendition
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D.," "2 POUNDS" and "2020."
Reverse: The likeness of David Bowie appears on the reverse, with "BOWIE" inscribed at an angle below, and a colorized lightning bolt in the background borrowed from his 1973 persona of Aladdin Sane, a moniker that is a play on the words "a lad insane." "THE STARS ARE NEVER FAR AWAY" is lettered on the coin's smooth edge, a phrase from "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," a song on Bowie's 24th studio album released in 2013 titled "The Next Day." Obverse and reverse designs are credited to acclaimed British artist Jody Clark, a member of the Mint's sculpting/engraving team since 2012.
