Australia Honors AC/DC With Coin Collection!!

These Are Really Cool!!
Royal Australian Mint is celebrating the 45th anniversary of AC/DC by releasing a special edition collection of 50-cent and $5 coins in honor of the iconic Australian rock band.  The mint is releasing a total of 30,000 50-cent coins to public, however, 10 of them will be unique.  In the spirit of AC/DC and their hit single "Thunderstruck", the Mint partnered with Questacon, the National Science and Technology Centre, to strike 10 AC/DC coins with a bolt of man-made lightning.   The experiment was conducted in the Caged Lightning exhibition at Questacon, which produces lightning using a Tesla coil. Ten AC/DC 50 cent pieces, appropriately featuring the famous high voltage logos and design elements from AC/DC albums, were 'Thunderstruck' with lightning.  "AC/DC is famous for their electrifying energy. It's in their music, the titles of some of their songs, even their insignia," said Royal Australian Mint chief executive officer Ross MacDiarmid.

"We weren't sure what effect the lightning would have on the coins, but we discovered that because the coins are such excellent conductors of electricity, the lightning's mark is only visible under magnification."  The 10 "Thunderstruck" coins will be randomly sent to ten customers who order their AC/DC - 45 Years of Thunder Uncirculated Coin through the Mint's online store or Contact Centre.  In order to help the ten lucky customers identify their "Thunderstruck" coins, the Mint has added unique frosting to the coin's AC/DC logo. A letter will also be included with the orders to inform the customers of their find.
