The unique gold £5 coin realized £72,000 or about $96,600 in U.S. funds, including the 15 percent buyers’ fee, during a June 29, 2011, auction by Bonham’s in London. It was a pretty penny for the singer of “Penny Lane” and other great hits from the 1960s.

The lineup of musical talent on money is far larger than what we could present, a veritable Bonnaroo of bucks and Lollapalooza of lira, as it were. 

Like music itself, the scope of such a collection could be vast or narrow, and allow for many improvisations along the way.
