Englantilaisen rockin legendoihin lukeutuva The Who on saanut upean kunnianosoituksen, kun Iso-Britanniassa on teetetty bändin teemalla koristeltu kolikko. Kolikko on osa uutta ”Music Legends” -kokoelmaa.

Ison-Britannian Kuninkaallisen Rahapajan Clare Maclennan kommentoi:

The Who are an iconic British band with an incredible musical legacy, so it felt right to honour them with an official UK coin. The Who coin is the latest in our show stopping Music Legends series, which celebrates legendary British artists through original new designs. It was a privilege to have Roger Daltrey visit the Mint to strike one of the first coins and meet the team of makers that have created this wonderful design. Our Music Legends series is engaging new generations of coin collectors, and we hope this design will become a cherished part of fan’s memorabilia.”

The Whon perustaja ja laulaja Roger Daltrey kommentoi bändin saamaa kunnianosoitusta seuraavasti:

”It’s an honour to have a coin produced to celebrate The Who’s musical legacy. The coin’s design captures the true essence of the band and what we represent. It was a fantastic moment being able to strike one of the very first pieces in the collection and see the range of technologies and processes involved in the making of the coin.”
