2018 50c Coloured Uncirculated Coin - AC/DC 45 Years of Thunder
Australians take pride in supporting those of us who work hard to chase their passions, especially those whose passion takes them to the world stage. With dozens of hits spanning over four decades, almost every Australian has at least one Acca Dacca tune that gets their toe-tapping. The Royal Australian Mint celebrates this impressive milestone with an exciting numismatic release.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
The music of AC/DC has entertained Australians far and wide as this hard-working band gigged relentlessly across the nation after forming in the early 1970s. Eager fans happily gathered in bars, clubs, pubs, and band rooms across Australia to watch their favourite new rock band slam out shows of intense energy and skilled craft. Perhaps what would not have been anticipated by audiences at the time, was that the music and lyrics they were witnessing would evolve beyond imagination into a living cultural legacy, not just in Australia but around the world. Their songs went on to be covered by a variety of admiring contemporaries, featured in movies, and performed on the theatrical stage. During this exciting 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.
