Elton honoured on coin

Elton John is "truly humbled" after being honoured on a commemorative coin.

The coin, available in gold, silver and brilliant uncirculated editions, was designed by British artist and digital sculptor Bradley Morgan Johnson for the Royal Mint's Music Legends coin series.

It features the Rocket Man star's trademark straw boater hat, a Union Jack and a pair of quaver notes.

Of the honor, Elton said in a statement: "It really is a fabulous honor to be recognized in this way. The last few years have contained some of the most memorable moments of my career, and this is another truly humbling milestone on my journey."

Queen were the first to be minted as part of the series - becoming the first band to ever be honored on a U.K. currency in the process.
