Australia makes special AC/DC coins to celebrate 45 years anniversary

In commemoration of ACDC 45th anniversary, the Australian Mint will launch a circulation of 30 thousand 50 cents coins and 10 thousand $ 5 commemorative coins. They will not circulate like regular coins, they will be available for collectors at $ 15 and $ 130 respectively (yes, that doesn’t make much sense).


10 fans of the band that order the commemorative coin can receive something much more special. 10 super-limited coins that after sisters-in-law were marked by a 3,500,000-volt radius (a tribute to the hit “Thunderstruck”) at Caged Lightning in Questacon, which produces presentations with Tesla coils.

Read what they said about the coins:

“The Mint thought that a band as iconic as AC / DC deserved high-voltage coins and an electrifying pitch to match. We don’t know what effect the rays will cause on coins, but we find that the quality of these coins makes the radius effect only visible in magnification. ”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
