2024 $1 Bon Scott 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin.

Legendary singer Bon Scott is best remembered as the original frontman of Australian hard rock band AC/DC. Born Ronald Belford Scott in Scotland on 9 July 1946, his family moved to Australia in 1952, settling in Fremantle, Western Australia.

A classic 'wild child', Bon began playing drums with a Scottish pipe band. He developed his lead singing as a member of local rock and pop bands before moving to the other side of Australia to join a progressive rock act. The pivotal moment of his career came in 1974 when he appeared on stage at an Adelaide hotel to sing with up and coming AC/DC.

Bon discovered am immediate affinity with the band's Scottish-born co-founders, Angus and Malcolm Young. Becoming a fully-fledged member in September that year, his inimitable stage presence and distinctive, raspy vocals were key elements in the band's rise to international super stardom. Bon was also a gifted lyricist whose powerful lines worked perfectly with the Young brothers' aggressive guitar riffs. Their work resulted in some of the most enduring hard rock ever recorded: TNT, It's Long Way to the Top, High Voltage, Jailbreak, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Highway to Hell, to name a few.

Aged 33, Bon Scott passed away in 1980 having made seven albums with AC/DC. He has never been forgotten. Adored by fans old and new, many believe him to be the greatest rock ' roll singer of all time. His legendary status lives on and continues to grow.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
