2019 AC/DC For Those About to Rock
AC/DC FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK 2019 Cook Islands 1/2oz proof coin: The latest release of this successful collection is dedicated to another million selling album (No 1 in US) from these hard rock icons. With the release of this hit record the band went on tour for more than one year. Still today, the title song is always the last song of an AC/DC concert with firing cannons on stage. For those about to rock is also a variation of the phrase “We who are about to die, salute you”, which is how ancient gladiators greeted their emperor when entering the arena. Angus Young got the idea for the title of the song after reading a book about the ancient gladiator games. This ½ oz silver coin showcases a historic cannon and has a diameter of 38.61 mm with a striking proof finish.
Depicts the AC/DC logo and the artwork from the 1981 album, For Those About to Rock (We Salute You), in ultra high relief.
On the obverse of the coin we find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in a proof finish.
Presented in a custom box. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
