New United Kingdom release from the Royal Mint – celebrating David Bowie in 24 Carat Gold and limited to just 1,300 coins worldwide
It is with much excitement that a new United Kingdom gold coin has been launched by the Royal Mint. Celebrating the life and achievements of David Bowie, the new quarter ounce coin has been struck in pure 24 Carat Gold – purer than the Sovereign. The coin has already SOLD OUT at the Royal Mint.
Featuring a design by Jody Clark with a portrait of Bowie from the period he lived and recorded in Berlin in the late 1970s for inspiration. Set against the lightning bolt motif from the Aladdin Sane era, the portrait shows Bowie shedding his various personae to reinvent himself, as he would continue to do for decades to come. Since his premature death in 2016 Bowie’s popularity has only grown, due to his wide-ranging catalogue of iconic songs such as Space Oddity; Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, making it is only right that he has now been celebrated.
The new coin has been struck in 24 Carat Gold to a peerless proof finish. Furthermore, a mintage of just 1,300 coins worldwide was set – far too small for a United Kingdom Quarter Ounce Gold Coin, which meant it came as no surprise that the coin quickly SOLD OUT due to the huge interest in the music legend. With that in mind, Harrington & Byrne has been extremely fortunate to secure a very limited stock of the coin.
With this extremely limited supply at Harrington & Byrne for this key 2020 Gold Proof Coin release an immediate response is recommended. Housed in official Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity, the 2020 United Kingdom David Bowie Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Coin is sure to be one of the coins of the year – don’t miss out.
