2023 $1 AC/DC 1oz .999 Silver Frosted Coin
In 1973, AC/DC exploded onto Australia’s music scene, quickly outgrowing local clubs to play at packed concerts around the world. AC/DC is as prolific as it is loud, producing 17 studio albums and selling more than 200 million records.
Continuing the Royal Australian Mint’s coins celebrating AC/DC’s albums in Volume I, it’s now releasing AC/DC Volume II commemorating five more albums.
Perhaps Australia’s most successful musical export, AC/DC first performed in 1973, and almost half a century on, the group is still going strong, having sold 200 million records.
From modest beginnings playing local clubs, the band graduated to larger venues and ultimately to performing in packed stadiums around the world. With its trademark heavy rock, AC/DC’s first album was in 1975 and the most recent release was in 2020.
AC/DC’s performers have changed over the years but the band has remained true to its legions of devoted fans.
The Royal Australian Mint commemorated six AC/DC albums with special coins in 2020 and continues that with Volume II, featuring this $1 Silver Frosted Uncirculated Coin commemorating five landmark albums.
Struck by Royal Australian Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 30,000.
The reverse of each coin is inspired by AC/DC album covers and features Angus Young playing his guitar on top of a repeating line pattern. The AC/DC inscription is in the middle of the coin.
The obverse of each coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark as well as the monetary denomination and 2023 year-date.
Each coin is presented in a capsule in a AC/DC themed presentation box.
