Over almost five decades it’s been a long way to the top of music charts globally for Australian rock legends AC/DC. To celebrate the milestone anniversaries of six of their album releases, the Royal Australian Mint has issued coloured coin tributes to the vinyls that have electrified generations of music fans.
In 2019 the Royal Australian Mint introduced an historic sixth effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Australia’s coins. This set of six silver proof 2020 coins features the new effigy on the obverse.
This 1/10oz silver coin commemorates 75 years since the end of World War II (WWII), which was the deadliest international conflict in history, accounting for the lives of an estimated 60 to 80 million soldiers and civilians.
Part of a prestigious series commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in 2020, these outstanding designs represent a poignant tribute to all those who fought for peace between 1939 and 1945.
