Royal Mint Honors George Michael with Commemorative Coin: A Tribute to Musical Legacy

The Royal Mint has introduced a special commemorative coin in remembrance of the late George Michael, former Wham! sensation.

Unveiled on Monday, the limited-edition coins honor the renowned singer-songwriter, particularly highlighting his iconic track “Faith.”

Crafted by artist Sandra Deiana, the collectible coins showcase a detailed portrait of Michael sporting his distinctive sunglasses against a backdrop featuring the iconic lyrics from “Faith.”

Deiana expressed her vision for the design, emphasizing the importance of capturing Michael’s charismatic essence, especially through his trademark sunglasses. She noted the privilege of paying homage to his musical legacy, underscoring that the design encapsulates a part of George Michael’s iconic song.

Renowned for his solo career that skyrocketed in the late 1980s, George Michael amassed an impressive record sales figure of over 125 million globally, solidifying his position as one of the highest-selling artists in history.

In a groundbreaking moment in 1998, Michael publicly came out as gay during a live TV interview, embracing his identity without any reservations. Reflecting on societal perceptions, he emphasized his comfort with his sexuality and relationship status, breaking barriers in the process.

Following his passing on Christmas Day in 2016 at the age of 53, George Michael’s estate has continued to thrive, reportedly generating nearly £55,000 ($70,000) per day.

George Michael Entertainment expressed deep gratitude for the Royal Mint’s tribute, acknowledging the profound honor bestowed upon the late artist. The statement conveyed Michael’s hypothetical pride and appreciation for being commemorated in such a significant manner by a national institution.

Enthusiasts can acquire the George Michael commemorative coin through The Royal Mint’s official website.
