Formed in London, England, in 1964, The Who quickly made a name for themselves in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. The original four-man collection of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, and Keith Moon performed together regularly from 1964 to 1978. Following Keith Moons death in 1978, the group would start to go through transformations in the decades to come, with new members coming and going.
When The Who was at the height of its popularity, the group was considered one of the most influential in music. Entwistle and Moon were highly regarded for their playing styles, impacting young-and-upcoming artists across a variety of genres. Townshends feedback and power chord techniques on the guitar were equally influential with new generations of performers. Now this iconic group is honored with a spot in the British Music Legends Series.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2021 British Music Legends The Who Gold Coins. This effigy of the Queen is the fifth-generation portrait to feature on British coins and comes with a depiction of Her Majesty with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
A guitar is depicted with the Union Jack on its body in the reverse design of 2021 1 oz The Who Gold Coins. This design showcases the so-called auto-destructive art of The Who. It was a regular occurrence for the members of the group to destroy guitars and drums on stage during concerts.
