In 1973, AC/DC exploded onto Australia’s music scene, quickly outgrowing local clubs to play at packed concerts around the world. AC/DC is as prolific as it is loud, producing 17 studio albums and selling more than 200 million records.
Continuing the Royal Australian Mint’s coins celebrating AC/DC’s albums in Volume I, it’s now releasing AC/DC Volume II commemorating five more albums.
Perhaps Australia’s most successful musical export, AC/DC first performed in 1973, and almost half a century on, the group is still going strong, having sold 200 million records.
From modest beginnings playing local clubs, the band graduated to larger venues and ultimately to performing in packed stadiums around the world. With its trademark heavy rock, AC/DC is as prolific as it is loud, producing 17 studio albums, the first in 1975 and the most recent in 2020.
AC/DC’s performers have changed over the years but the band has remained true to its legions of devoted fans.
The Royal Australian Mint commemorated six AC/DC albums with special coins in 2020 and continues that with Volume II, featuring this $1 Silver Frosted Uncirculated Coin commemorating five landmark albums.
