Well if nothing else at least there’s a bit more going on with this one than the Queen version.

Do you think Sir Elton had a hand in the design and approval process of the design? Forgive me for not reading up on the release, as it really doesn’t interest me.

Could you imagine how cool that would've looked....

Instant winner....

 

If he had a say in the design, I think he would concur that would be the design to go with!!

These Musician Coins are an embarrassment.

Clearly some idiot at the RM is unaware that "serial" is a homonym.

I'd be extremely disappointed to discover this trolley token tumbling out with my Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.

It’s a little sad when the outer box design is better than the coin design.

It looks like the box should contain his new perfume.

I am a massive Elton fan but I dislike the design of the coin.


Currently stacking 10oz Britannia bars and RCM bars

I can't find an emoticon for fingers down throat and.....you get the rest.

Agreed.

 But it will likely get pumped up and a frenzy will ensue for the rarer denominations with a low mintage. 
For me, this design would look fabulous as it sinks to the bottom of the melting pot.

I think I'll pass on this one. Could be a nice little earner again if you could afford to buy the expected 2oz gold, which seems to do good in the auctions...but not me at this point. Trying to save up for the later releases this year, i.e Queen's beasts and sovereign. And who knows another strike on the day sovereign?

Can’t imagine there’ll be the same interest in these, as there was in the Queen coins. I don’t know a single person that would open their curtains to watch Elton John.

Elton John is popular but I can't see there being the same dedicated fans buying the coins. The Queen design has grown on me but this one is just a mess. I won't be buying...

I got in on the queen late and am a massive Queen fan so was happy to pay a premium for it.

I also do like to collect series and prefer to finish what I start.

I say prefer. I'll not be getting this one. Just no. Really really poor design for a decent artist.

🤮

I showed it to my wife and she said "that's clever, a lot better than the Queen one"!

What can I say?🤔

Has she had her coffee for the morning and put her glasses on (contact lenses in). 😂🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Huuu! I like Elton John, but I'm not sure what to say about this coin design. I'll have a think about it.

I wonder if the Royal Mint has its eyes set on 'The Fab Four', the Beatles??? If they're thinking about it, my advice would be 'Handle with care!' 🙂

I'm sure they will have already thought about it, it would have been logical to have started with the Beatles. I bet they couldn't sort out a design that encapsulated the four of them without trespassing on iconic images that may well be heavily copyrighted.


Happy to receive feedback on all my trades. If anyone wants feedback from me, just say the word.

Yeah I'll be surprised if they do a Beatles given the cost. It will be interesting to see who they do next.
