AC/DC Is Also Releasing A Coin In The Cook Islands

Australia isn’t the only country with a new AC/DC coin. The Cook Islands will release a $10 AC/DC coin to mark the 10th anniversary of the Black Ice album.

The Royal Australian Mint announced its AC/DC 50c and $5 coins on Thursday (2 October 2018) and quickly sent its online store into a meltdown. (The 50c coin is now currently unavailable).

The Cook Islands coin is rarer than the Australian editions. Only 999 coins will be minted. Australia has produced 30,000 50c coins and 10,000 $5 coins.

Why Cook Islands chose a ‘Black Ice’ coin to uncertain. It was hardly one of the band’s best works.

‘Black Ice’ the album was released on 17 October 2008. It was AC/DC’s 15th album. The album closed off an eight-year recording gap for the band. The Black Ice tour was generated after the album and became one of the most successful tours of all time, generating $441.6 million in ticket sales after 168 performances.

In July AC/DC released a botched version of their album collection as stamps in Australia. The stamp series featured the international editions, not the Australian covers and neglected to include albums only released in Australia.
