Day of sadness December 8, 1980
On the anniversary of the shooting of John Lennon, post a coin or medal with John.
This is the unique 5 pound 2010 Lennon gold coin, Tyrant collection.
From the Tyant Collection web site (errors fixed by me):
Elizabeth II, “John Lennon” Commemorative Proof Gold 5-Pounds 2010 PCGS-graded PR69 Deep Cameo.
Elizabeth II, House of Windsor Queen 1952 to Present
Older portrait of the Queen. “Yoko Ono Presentation”. This is a unique specimen struck in gold specifically as a gift for John Lennon’s widow, as noted on the grading insert. All other known examples of this unusual coin, featuring a large portrait of the musician, were struck in silver and copper-nickel. Yoko Ono auctioned this coin in order to raise funds for charity. Mintage in gold: 1 coin.
