2018 marks 45 years since the formation of a young band in suburban Sydney who, via Melbourne, would go on to conquer the world. During this anniversary year, for a band that has achieved such impressive feats, AC/DC can now add legal tender status to their many accolades.
Turning the volume up on this numismatic tribute, the Royal Australian Mint has for the first time inverted the triangular coin in order to resemble a guitar pick. This special silver coin is black thanks to a nickel plating process, and to finish it off, high voltage logos in vibrant colour print have been added. For fans of the band and collectors alike, this piece is a must-have, due to the unique commemoration it observes and the iconic features of its design.
