AC/DC HIGH VOLTAGE 2018 Cook Islands 1/2oz silver coin

AC/DC HIGH VOLTAGE 2018 Cook Islands 1/2oz silver coin: CIT is proud to issue this officially licensed AC/DC coin for collectors at ANA 2018. This silver coin references the band’s release onto the international stage, upstaging the critics (Rolling Stone Magazine) to go on to international success (thus proving the insightful track “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)”). This coin is produced in striking color highlights with an extra large format for a 1/2oz coin.

High Voltage is the first internationally released studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It contains tracks from their first two previous Australia-only issued albums, High Voltage and T.N.T. (both from 1975).

Originally released internationally on 30 April 1976 on Atlantic Records and in the US on 14 May 1976 on ATCO Records, this edition of High Voltage has proven popular, selling three million units in the US alone. However, initially the album was panned by some critics upon its release, including a review by Rolling Stone magazine’s Billy Altman that called it an “all-time low” for the hard rock genre. It was re-released in 2003 as part of the AC/DC Remasters series. (Source: Wikipedia)
