Currently, Elton John marks the second musician to receive this everlasting tribute.

All About Elton 

Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in Pinner, London, the famed musician began his career in the 1960’s playing piano at a nearby pub. After beginning a long-term collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin, Reginald legally changed his name to Elton Hercules John, honoring saxophonist Elton Dean and vocalist Long John Baldry from his former band “Bluesology”. Sadly, his first album “Blue Sky” didn’t achieve the recognition he desired. However, his follow up album included his first breakout single, “Your Song”. This song, along with several subsequent hits, catapulted John into the spotlight. In addition to his successful recordings, Sir Elton John’s live shows left quite an impression on his audiences. In fact, as Elton was known for wearing over-the-top costumes including blinding sequins and wacky sunglasses, his live concerts were not ones to miss!  Besides “Your Song”, Elton’s most famous songs include “Tiny Dancer”, “Rocket Man”, and  “Bennie and the Jets”

Terrific Design for the “Tiny Dancer” Singer 

The obverse of these coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Jody Clark. Inscriptions surrounding the portrait include the Queen’s name and the face value.

The reverse of each Elton John coin pays homage to the iconic singer-songwriter and his notable apparel. The straw hat similar to the one worn in Sir Elton’s “I’m Still Standing” music video appears near the top of the coin. Directly below the hat, the coin’s designer placed musical note shaped eyewear, as Elton John is known for his eccentric eyewear. A striped bowtie ties the look together over a background containing the Union Jack flag design. Elton John’s name, with a star inside each of the O’s, completes the reverse design right above the bowtie and below the sunglasses. Lastly, the weight, purity, and year of mintage are etched in a repeating pattern around the rim.
