Superstar George Michael, one of the bestselling musicians of all time, appears on collectable coins unveiled by the Royal Mint.
Featuring the singer-songwriter’s signature look from his debut solo album Faith, it is the latest in the Mint’s Music Legends series, following David Bowie, Sir Elton John and Queen.
The collectable coins are available as limited-edition precious metal proof finishes, brilliant uncirculated and colour versions, and can be purchased from the Royal Mint’s website
Prices for the coins start from £15.50 for the £5 denomination. A 2oz gold coin, with a denomination of £200, is available for £5,305.
“On behalf of George Michael, we are deeply honoured that the Royal Mint is paying tribute to him by creating a series of beautifully crafted coins. He would have been enormously proud and genuinely touched that a national institution should have decided to pay tribute to his memory in this way,” George Michael Entertainment said in a statement.

George Michael went from a teen heartthrob as part of the pop group WHAM! to one of the bestselling solo musicians of all time, selling more than 125 million records.
His passing in 2016 devastated millions of his devoted fans around the world.
