Pop music has been one of the United Kingdom's most successful exports in recent decades, influencing people and cultures all over the world. In 2020 The Royal Mint is celebrating some of the country's most important artists– individuals and bands who have helped shape our love of music. No such collection would make sense without the inclusion of Elton John, the superstar who has been delighting fans for more than half a century.
Born Reginald Dwight, Elton John displayed remarkable musical talent at a very young age. This underlying musicality and a passion for rock ‘n’ roll drove him to breakthrough from playing in pubs to become a global sensation. His record shows that he has made more than 4,000 performances in over 80 countries and sold in excess of 300 million records worldwide. Elton John is, without doubt, a British music legend.
