A Colorful Vision of Some of the Music World’s Biggest Icons
Before CDs and music downloads there were vinyl records – big 33⅓ “platters” that came in beautifully-designed album sleeves often featuring the best artwork in the industry. One of the most famous artists to work in the record business was Sid Maurer, who as a skinny 17-year-old kid was hired by Columbia Records in New York City as an assistant art director. Throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, Maurer worked with some of the top recording acts designing album covers and promotional materials. He left the music business in the1990s to pursue his dreams of painting full-time and now his love of painting and his passion for music have combined to create a series of coins called the Legends of Music – and this is the FIRST time these coins have been made available!
In all, six different coins have been released paying tribute to David Bowie, Elvis Presley, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger and Bob Marley. Each legal-tender $5 coin is struck in one-ounce of 99.9% fine silver and uses the latest in colorization technology to capture the image of a famous music star. On the coins in this six-piece set you will see Sid Maurer’s rendition of each star in full vibrant color. The large 50 mm diameter of these coins really lets you experience these music icons through Maurer's unique pop art style. Plus, the colorization process gives the coins the look and feel of an actual vinyl record!
Each coin in your 2019 Solomon Islands One-Ounce Silver Sid Maurer’s Legends of Music Six-Piece Colorized Proof Set has been expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. Plus, the entire collection will come in matching single-coin sleeves and housed in beautiful presentation cases. And by order the complete set, you’ll save more than $50 from what you would pay if you ordered them individually.
Now, these dynamic music icons have been immortalized as one of artist Sid Maurer's "Legends of Music." Part of the Sid Maurer Celebrity Icons© series, only 10,000 of each proof coin has been authorized for worldwide release, and they’re sure to strike a chord with music lovers everywhere. Don't wait to score yours – the stage is set for you to order yours now!
