Australia has been ‘thunderstuck’ with new AC/DC coins.

The Royal Australian Mint has produced 30,000 AC/DC 50c coins and 10,000 $5 coins but they will not be circulated. A $10 AC/DC coin has also been released in the Cook Islands.

The special edition coins will only be available online from the Royal Australian Mint.

One 50 cent coin will cost you $15. One $5 is available for $130.

ACDC $5 coin

According to the Royal Australian Mint website,

Unrelenting, frank, and at times irreverent, the electrifying music of Australia’s premier rock band AC/DC turns 45 in 2018. Bursting into the Australian live music scene late in 1973 these hard-working musicians certainly took the long way to the top and managed to stay there for decades. The Royal Australian Mint proudly celebrates the 45th anniversary of our greatest rock band AC/DC with this coloured uncirculated coin.

In 2018 we mark 45 years since the formation of a young band in suburban Sydney, who via Melbourne would conquer the rock music world. Turning the volume up on our numismatic tribute to AC/DC we have inverted the triangular blank and present this intricate design oriented like a guitar pick. Nickel plated black and featuring the high voltage logos in vibrant colour print, this is a must have piece for fans of the band or collectors alike.

The new coins are both officially licensed AC/DC merchandise and are available now from the Mint’s online store at eshop.ramint.gov.au or by phoning the Contact Centre on 1300 652 020.

Australia Post also released AC/DC stamps in July.
