2019 €15 silver coin Phil Lynott

On behalf of the Minister for Finance, the Central Bank will issue a €15 silver proof coin to mark the 70th anniversary of the year of birth of Irish music legend Phil Lynott. Lynott was born in the West Midlands of England but grew up in Dublin. After fronting several bands, Lynott formed Thin Lizzy in 1969. The band first found success with “Whiskey in the Jar”, followed by several hits in the mid-1970s with songs such as “The Boys Are Back in Town”, “Jailbreak”, “The Rocker” and “Waiting for an Alibi”.
