Elvis® #1 Gold: Jailhouse Rock™ 1957 Silver Round Coin
Every Elvis fan remembers this iconic moment – Elvis dancing the Jailhouse Rock to the tune of the same name in the film of the same name. Now immortalized in precious silver, this distinctive collectible coin honors both Elvis Presley® the rock and roll icon and Elvis Presley the actor – and it can now be yours!
In the film, Presley’s character has been convicted for manslaughter Cheated by his washed-up country singer cellmate, and troubled by his own temper, Elvis conquers all in the end, forging a successful singing career and earning the love of a good woman. The single was written by the songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who as songwriters are nearly as integral to the history of rock and roll as is Elvis. “Jailhouse Rock” topped the charts for seven weeks in 1957, one of a dozen Leiber/Stoller tunes to be a hit for the King.
This Elvis #1 Gold “Jailhouse Rock” Coin is fittingly minted in solid .999-fine silver, adding the value of precious metal to the unique nature of this collectible coin. Minted in the USA, the obverse of the “Jailhouse Rock” coin captures the King twice: freezing his iconic dance from the film, and in profile highlighting his fabled ducktail hairstyle and lip curl. The reverse is a replica 45 RPM record of “Jailhouse Rock.” 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 collectible version of the Elvis Presley #1 hit most associated with his enormously successful film career – he starred in 31 films and two concert films – belongs in the hands of every dedicated Elvis Presley fan. Buy it as a gift or buy it for yourself -- either way it will serve as every Elvis fan’s best connection to the most famous party a warden ever threw in a county jail.
