Johnny Hallyday 60 years of memories
Gold coin of €50
Proof quality, year 2020
To mark the 3rd anniversary of Johnny Hallyday's death and the 60th anniversary of his first title, the Monnaie de Paris has decided to pay tribute to this great artist through a new range of monetary and non-monetary products. This collection highlights the showman, the outstanding guitarist and the great biker that Johnny was.
The face of this coin pays tribute to the greatness and longevity of Johnny Hallyday's career. The two portraits separated by the curve of a guitar represent the artist at two moments of his life which was dedicated to music and the stage. The abbreviation "RF" is also stylised in the form of guitar strings. The inscription "60 years of memories" underlines the long career of France's favourite rocker and refers to his cult song "Souvenirs, Souvenirs".
The reverse side of this coin represents two objects that have punctuated the life of the owner: the guitar and the motorbike. A biker at heart, the artist's favourite vehicle is subtly integrated on the guitar body. The guitar's strings form his name to symbolise his deep bond with this instrument.
