CIT 2018 AC/DC Black Ice 2oz silver proof coin: CIT is proud to issue this officially licensed AC/DC coin for collectors at ANA 2018. This silver coin references the band’s ten year anniversary of the superb album Black Ice. This coin is produced in striking black proof finish with color highlights and outstanding smartminting relief.

Black Ice is the 15th studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It was the band’s fourteenth internationally released studio album and the fifteenth in Australia. Released internationally on 17 October 2008, it was produced by Brendan O’Brien. It marked the band’s first original recordings since 2000’s Stiff Upper Lip, with the eight-year gap being the longest between AC/DC’s successive studio albums. Black Ice has the longest running time of any AC/DC studio album. Black Ice was released exclusively in physical formats, as the group did not sell its music digitally at the time.

At the ARIA Music Awards of 2009, Black Ice won in the categories of Best Rock Album and Highest Selling Album; it was nominated for Album of the Year and AC/DC were nominated for Group of the Year. It was nominated for Best International Album at the Juno Awards and the Brit Awards. It won the 2009 Classic Rock Roll of Honour Award for Album of the Year. At the APRA Awards of 2010 Angus and Malcolm won Songwriters of the Year, and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Train” won Most Played Australian Work Overseas. At the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Train” was nominated for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, and at the 2010 ceremony, Black Ice was nominated for Best Rock Album and the track “War Machine” won the Best Hard Rock Performance category.
