Elvis® #1 Gold: Heartbreak Hotel™ 1956 Silver Round Coin
Capture the legend of the King in precious silver! For devoted Elvis collectors comes a truly memorable item – a pure silver replica tribute to the King’s first pop #1 record, “Heartbreak Hotel.” This matchless tribute will shine brightly in your collection as part of the coin tribute to Elvis Presley’s chart-topping hits as replica 45 RPM records, Elvis #1 Gold.
“Heartbreak Hotel” was the first Elvis Presley® hit for RCA Records after his years at legendary Sun Records, established by Sam Phillips. “I walk a lonely street” was the line that prompted Tommy Durden to bring the idea to Mae Boren Axton; with her addition of a “Heartbreak Hotel” at the street’s end and the King’s plaintive voice and gyrating hips – backed by Elvis’ regular band, the Blue Moon Boys, with future legends Chet Atkins and Floyd Cramer sitting in, “Heartbreak Hotel” topped the chart in mere months.
This Elvis #1 Gold “Heartbreak Hotel” Coin is aptly minted in solid .999-fine silver, adding the worth of precious metal to the unique nature of this collectible coin. Minted in the USA, the obverse of the “Heartbreak Hotel” coin depicts two iconic views of Elvis: shaking his hips with a guitar hanging off his shoulders, and in profile highlighting his fabled ducktail hairstyle and lip curl. The reverse is a replica 45 RPM record of “Heartbreak Hotel.” Each coin is sealed in a clear Lucite capsule and nested in an elegant blue leatherette presentation box; the King’s signature adorns the inside of the box, and a certificate of authenticity is enclosed to verify provenance and silver content.
Though you can’t play it on your phonograph or your CD player, this silver version of the very first Elvis Presley pop #1 hit will be a hit with every Elvis Presley fan. As a gift or for yourself, it will serve as a tangible way to remember the shivers that went down your spine the first time you heard the King.
