AC/DC Commemorative Coins – Yup It’s A Thing
I remember when I was a kid you'd always see commercials for the Franklin Mint Commemorative Presidential Plates or some other strange thing they assured you was a great investment. Well, here we go again down under style.
The Cook Islands, a nation in the South Pacific, has released the silver coins paying homage to ‘For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)’ and ‘The Razors Edge’. And you can put them on the shelf right next to your those plates your grandma willed to you and your beanie babies.
Believe it or not these aren't the first ones either. These are 3 and 4 in the set just coming available. The coins are in celebration of AC/DC's landmark 1981 album ‘For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)’ and the 1990’s ‘The Razors Edge’ both coins boast a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the flip side.
According to NME the 'Razor's Edge' coin is a $2 coin and the 'For Those About To Rock' coin is $10.
