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

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.

The iconic Liverpool artist is one of six heavyweights of British history, including Jane Austen and Sir Walter Raleigh battling for a place in the line-up, but so far he is placed fourth.

Vote online before July 31, at http://www.royalmint.com/greatbritons

I two passed on the stupid git! Perhaps if his likeness wins it will be of a tasteful period in his life, not Beatlemania .... but Imagine 1971 :wink:

Earlier this year the Royal Mint invited you to vote for your Great Briton.

.... by a landslide 27,874 out of 30,267 votes! John Lennon has emerged the overall winner, beating the likes of Jane Austen, Sir Walter Raleigh and Emmeline Pankhurst. As promised, the Royal Mint has now produced a new coin featuring YOUR Great Briton - John Lennon.

It's not so bad ...... beats trying to portray the Hippy Lennon :lol: Still it's fun to see Lennon on a coin with the flipside being the old gal herself 8)
