Rock ‘n roll great

Many believe Bon Scott to be the greatest rock ‘n roll singer of all time. Born Ronald Belford Scott in Scotland on 9 July 1946, his family moved to Australia in 1952, settling in Fremantle, Western Australia, where he cut his musical teeth. On joining AC/DC in 1974, his inimitable stage presence and distinctive, raspy vocals were key elements in the band’s rise to international super stardom. Together they recorded and performed some of the most enduring hard rock ever known.

Bon Scott tribute design

The coin portrays a coloured image of Bon Scott wearing a denim jacket with cut off sleeves. The design includes the inscription ‘BON SCOTT’ in which the first ‘O’ is overlain with a ‘lion rampant’ holding a microphone, and a representation of ‘Bon’ in handwritten lettering. Also within the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
