Iconic Bob Marley Design by Sid Baurer
Sid Maurer's ability to artistically represent well-known individuals in many areas of life is virtually unparalleled. The reverse features an image of Bob Marley that he created. Marley smiles broadly at the holder, just as he did at countless audiences throughout his career. Splashes of color enhance the bright, light feel of the image. Thanks to the use of black color printing application, the full face looks much like a vinyl record. Among the inscriptions on this face is the name of the series of which the coin is a part, "LEGENDS OF MUSIC."
