Why purchase this 2021 Legends of Music: The Who colorized silver proof coin?
The fourth release of the Royal Mint's Legends of Music series is an homage to The Who, one of music history's most influential rock bands.
Charming Whimsical Design
Obverse: The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II located on the obverse was crafted by artist Jody Clark. The portrait is surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D.," "2 POUNDS" and "2021." Mr. Clark is notably the first Royal Mint sculptor to create a definitive monarch coinage portrait in more than a century.
Reverse: The reverse is inspired by the 1969 hit song, "Pinball Wizard" and the band's onstage destructive antics. A Rickenbacker guitar adorned with a colorized Union Jack is fashioned into a pinball game, with flippers, a ball and plunger. The background speaker stack is smashed, with the jagged opening framing the Mod symbol and "THE WHO" logo. The image is credited to renowned British artist Henry Gray, whose additional designs for the Mint include the 2020 British Red Cross and the 2017 Royal Flying Corps commemorative coins.
