David Bowie was one of the most memorable musicians to come out of Britain in the 20th century. Equal parts trendsetter and trend-breaker, Bowie was famous for his ever-changing style, sound, and personal appearance. The iconic musician enjoyed a career that spanned across six decades from the 1960s and 1970s to 2000s and 2010s. He remained active up until his death in 2016. Today, he is honored in the Music Legends Series as the third release of the collection. 2021 1 oz Gold British Music Legends David Bowie Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Bowie is remembered as a chameleon of sorts in the music industry, ever-evolving in appearance, sound, and style. He would sometimes set trends only to later completely move away from the trend that he himself had set. Aladdin Sane was the sixth album from Bowie and the first he released as a well-known, popular artist. It was the follow-up album to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardom and the Spiders from Mars. That album and the Ziggy Stardust alter ego marked one of his first transformations in his career, one in which he became a flamboyant and androgynous performer.
All of the 2021 1 oz Gold British Music Legends David Bowie Coins listed here come with protective plastic capsules and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Royal Mint. These coins are third in the British Music Legends Series behind Queen and Elton John, respectively.
On the obverse side of 2021 Gold British Music Legends David Bowie Coins is Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of the Queen, aged 89, was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and is the definitive fifth-generation effigy of Her Majesty during her long reign as Queen of England. The design element includes the guilloche background element common to all British coins as of 2017/2018.
The reverse field of the 2021 1 oz Gold British Music Legends David Bowie Coin features a depiction of the artist. This image of Bowie bears a lightning bolt behind his figure with the appearance of Bowie and his style of dress inspired by his Aladdin Sane release and general era of his music.
