2020 20c AC/DC Back in Black Coin & Stamp Cover PNC.
Australian hard rock band AC/DC has sold millions of albums worldwide and has received many Australian music industry accolades, commencing with induction into the inaugural ARIA Hall of Fame in 1988.
AC/DC was inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
The band won a Grammy Award for best rock performance in 2010, some 40 years after it originally formed.
Back in Black, the highest selling album in AC/DC's discography and one of the highest selling of all time by any act, was released on the Atlantic Records label on 25 July 1980.
The album is AC/DC's tribute to Bon Scott, the rock band's former lead singer, who had passed away in February that year. As such, it's the band's first album to feature lead singer Brian Johnson.
Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the album's sound is polished but still hard-edged. As well as the title track, the album includes a slew of classic hits, including "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Shoot to Thrill" and "What Do You Do for Money Honey".
Often described as one of the greatest rock albums of all time, Back in Black reached number 1 in several countries including Australia and the UK, as well as number 4 in the USA, where it recently surpassed 25 million units in sales.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated cupro nickel coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin's reverse and obverse designs.
The stamp and coin cover features an illustrated envelope featuring the AC/DC Back In Black Album cover. It includes an Australian $1.10c stamp featuring Australia and is post marked First Date of Issue 10 November 2020, Melbourne VIC 3000.
The coin's obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date and the monetary denomination.
