Back in 2008, legendary Australian rock band AC/DC announced their first stadium tour in eight years ­ to coincide with the release of their new ‘Black Ice’ album – it was aptly named the ‘Black Ice World Tour’.

It transpired that absence had only made the heart grow fonder and all 18 dates sold out in record time. In fact, unprecedented fan response forced additional shows in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Oakland.

Another sell out

Now, 10 years on, the band are celebrating another record sell out. Clearly the appetite for all things AC/DC related has only increased.

An officially licensed 2oz silver ‘Black Ice’ coin was issued and the worldwide edition limit of just 999 was completely sold out before the coin had even been released.

The coin design features the ‘Black Ice’ album cover artwork, combining selective colour, high relief created using state of the art smartminting and a stunning black proof finish.

AC/DC’s legendary ‘Black Ice’ album debuted at No.1 on album charts in 29 countries and has been certified Multi-Platinum in eight countries. It’s easy to see why this coin is in such demand.

Record breaking

Remarkably, another AC/DC coin, recently Issued by The Royal Australian Mint, sold out in less than 24 hours – that had an edition limit of 30,000! I cannot remember anything from this mint ever selling out so fast and amazingly this was only available to collectors in Australia and New Zealand.
