One year ago CIT launched the first officially licensed AC/DC coins. We did not expect rock and coin fans worldwide to make this memorabilia series such a huge success. No doubt this collection needs to be extended and so we added 4 extraordinary pieces. Beside a special shaped guitar pick (no Hard Rock without an electric guitar) the master piece of the new AC/DC releases is The Razors Edge coin. Check out the Proof finish that is expertly colored in just the right spots and a mind blowing high relief based on our smartminting© technology is a modern 3D version of the original album cover. This Razors Edge coin is on the cutting edge of minting Technology!
