The Rolling Stones, the great wolves of rock, celebrated 60 years of their presence on the world music scene with their European tour that ended in Berlin in August.
The Royal Mint of Britain, wanting to mark the special 60th anniversary of one of the most important British rock bands, has released a collector’s coin of 5 pounds.
In fact, it is one of the last coins of the year to be released with the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
On one side of the coin, engraved in a 1973 font, is the name of the band and on the other side a portrait of the late Queen.
