Vote for John Lennon


Recommended Posts

John Lennon could be immortalised forever on a commemorative coin if he takes the lead in a groundbreaking poll.


This Day in Music.com is running a campaign to make all music fans aware of this and asking everybody to vote for John.


For the first time in its 1,100-year history, the Royal Mint is asking the public to decide who should be commemorated on the next coin in its Great Britons collectable series, alongside Shakespeare, Churchill, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale and Sir Isaac Newton.


Everybody please vote for John.


Vote online before July 31, at http://www.royalmint.com/Annex/GreatBritonsVote.aspx?promcode=FS4A

Are these collectible coins, or circulated, "real money" coins?


I feel like collector's coins are a waste of time. If you want to commemorate someone, stick it on the reverse of a coin people who don't want to pay four times face value will actually see. Like they do with stamps.


[EDIT] I won't vote, as a non-Briton. I was in Boston once and was asked to sign a petition about Massachusetts collecting bottle deposits on water or something like that, and said I was from New York. It didn't matter - the guy with the clipboard was from Pennsylvania.
