Coin collecting isn’t necessarily the coolest hobby, but these new AC/DC coins from the Royal Australian Mint might make you change your mind.

In honor of the band’s 45th anniversary, the Australian government is immortalizing the legendary rock band in a fifty cent piece and five dollar triangular coin that looks more like a guitar pick than money.  


While these coins are only available to customers in Australia and New Zealand, don’t be shocked if they end up on eBay in the coming weeks.
