Every now and then on ebay I see a plate with Freddie on it. One of the latest descriptions said it was from the Danbury Mint, so I googled that, and the U.K. site shows all of the Freddie plates.

Down the leftside column click PEOPLE and then Freddie Mercury.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

If you want to get any of the plates then go for the Mick Rock ones as they are real photographs of FM. The other set are all paintings printed onto the plates and are not so good....in fact, crap compared to the Mick Rock plates. And they are official too.

Wow! Thanks for this information. I would want real photographs.

I LOVE it!!! But the thing is how much is the set in US dollars? And I love the snake ring.

Expensive yes, but totally worth it to a collector!


Is multiplying by two too tricky to do?

Ebay has an option for converting currency that is easy to use, FYI.

Thank you gentlemen, but I didn't know that. You are such a kind asshole Guru.

Maybe you didn't know that the us dollar has lost value? Maybe you should spend less time being a prick and more time paying attention to the world around you.


Kind asshole...isn't that an oxymoron?

Yes, the dollar did lose value, making it exactly half of what the pound is worth. P_G may be abrupt, but he is right about multiplying by 2.

Fucking hell, there's a link on the site marked "US customers click here".

Yes I'm a git, but why not use the extra 3 braincells it would have taken to NOT be such an easy target for me?

Especially the crack about how your poor currency is having it's arse handed to it on a daily basis, whereby you demonstrate that I'VE actually got a better idea of what's going on in the world around me than you do...

Now do one...

They're expensive, but beautiful. Thanks for sharing this. :D

How ironic! I'm wearing a snake ring right now! :D
I have a snake bangle similar to Freddie's, by the way, except it's gold. :P

Look up tat in the dictionary and I'm sure there's a picture of a Freddie Mercury Commemorative Plate.

Seriously, spend the money on a taste transplant instead: you will thank me in the long run.
