AC/DC is an Australian music icon and this year celebrates 50 years since forming in 1973. To recognise Australia’s most popular rock band, the Royal Australian Mint is releasing two coins, which will appeal to AC/DC fans as well as new and repeat collectors. This program follows the release of the AC/DC 45th anniversary program released in 2018.
AC/DC’s popularity is solidified in Australia, with the group a cultural icon. Their music has transcended decades, trends and tragedy, with several former group members, including founder Malcolm Young, dying.
Coin’s obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark.
