Notice to collectors
Queen will therefore be the third music group to receive such a tribute from the Royal British Post. Before them, only the Beatles and Pink Floyd had benefited from such treatment. Needless to say, it will be a limited series. It is already possible to pre-order this series on the royal post office website.
The interpreters of Bohemian Rhapsody had already had the right to a series of coins struck by the royal currency a few months ago, always to celebrate their half century of existence.
