Highlight Story

Three decades after his death, Beatles singer John Lennon's legacy continues to live with a commemorative British coin honouring him going on sale in the UK, weeks after what would have been the legend's 70th birthday.

The Imagine hit-maker was announced winner of an online vote to determine which British luminary would be honoured with a commemorative coin struck by the Royal Mint.

Lennon’s coin, which depicts him with long hair and sideburns and his trademark round glasses, will have a face value of $8 but will be sold for $71.63.

Only 5,000 coins will be sold.
