A brief annotation Inspiring, controversial, passionate and complex. He is, without doubt, one of the great musical giants of the twentieth century. He left a legacy that goes far beyond the global reach of his music. His powerful message of peace and love which manifests through his artistic talent continues to uplift and inspire us. The Royal Mint asked people to choose their favourite Great Briton from a short list of six influential people in British history. John Lennon won by a landslide 27,874 out of 30,267 votes! Celebrating John as people’s latest Great Briton, this £5 Base Proof coin also commemorates the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s untimely death.
