On the occasion of Australia’s premier rock band AC/DC turning 45 in 2018, the Royal Australian Mint presents our first ever nickel plated coin. Not only black; this innovative coin is also minted on our sought-after triangular blank. The Royal Australian Mint proudly celebrates AC/DC’s impressive milestone with this electrifying numismatic release.
In 2018 we mark 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 for a band that has achieved impressive feats, the Royal Australian Mint is pleased to announce that AC/DC can add legal tender status to their accolades. Turning the volume up on our numismatic tribute, we have for the first time inverted the triangular coin and present the intricate design oriented to resemble a guitar pick. The coin is black thanks to our nickel plating process, and to finish it off we have added high voltage logos in vibrant colour print. 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.
