The Royal Mint is celebrating the Rolling Stones six decades of existence with new collectable coins.

The Rolling Stones formed in 1962 and their hits include Satisfaction, Wild Horses, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Start Me Up, You Can’t Always Get What You Want and Sympathy For The Devil.

Designed by Hannah Phizacklea, the coins bring together elements of the Rolling Stones’ instruments, stage presence, heritage and fashion to celebrate the global impact of their music, the Mint added.

The design captures the band mid-performance via a silhouette illustration designed to reflect the energy and excitement of attending their gigs.

The Rolling Stones said in a statement: “We are delighted to be honoured by way of an official UK coin. Even more significant that the release coincides with our 60th anniversary.”

The design is the fifth to be released in the Mint’s Music Legends series, which also features Queen, Sir Elton John, David Bowie, and the Who.

The Royal Mint said the series has become one of its most popular global coin collections.

Rebecca Morgan, director of collector services at the Royal Mint, said: “Our Music Legends series is creating a new generation of coin collectors, and we are delighted to honour the Rolling Stones’ musical achievements with this new collectable coin.

“We hope this provides a fitting tribute to the band’s 60 years of rock and roll music for their millions of fans across the globe.

“The coin is also one of the last to be released bearing the effigy of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, marking a significant moment in history.”
