Elvis® #1 Gold: Heartbreak Hotel™ 1956 MerlinGold Coin

With a voice that was equal parts danger and delight and with hips that shook to the new beat that shocked 1950s America, it’s no wonder that millions revere Elvis Presley® as “the King of Rock and Roll.” If you are one of the King’s loyal musical subjects, you’ll want to own this unique collectible coin in tribute to Elvis Presley’s chart-topping hits as replica 45 RPM records, Elvis #1 Gold.

In 1955 RCA Records obtained Elvis Presley’s recording contract from Sun Records, setting the stage for his first pop #1 hit, “Heartbreak Hotel.” Written by Mae Boren Axton, a high school teacher and music promoter, and singer-songwriter Tommy Durden. The tune’s haunting lyrics were inspired by a news item Durden had read about a man who killed himself, leaving a note with a single, sorrowful line, “I walk a lonely street.” Boren suggested that there should be a “Heartbreak Hotel” at the end of the street, and the song was written. Recorded at Presley’s first recording session for RCA on January 10, 1956 with Chet Atkins and Floyd Cramer joining in with his regular band, the Blue Moon Boys, it was shipped as a single on January 27, and topped the charts by spring.

This Elvis #1 Gold “Heartbreak Hotel” Coin is suitably minted in MerlinGold®, a proprietary alloy of gleaming golden bronze with a proof-like character and luster. Minted in the USA, the obverse of the “Heartbreak Hotel” coin depicts two iconic views of the King: 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.”

Though you can’t play this on your phonograph or your CD player, this collectible version of the very first Elvis Presley #1 hit belongs in the hands of every Elvis Presley fan. Whether buying it 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.

ITEM # 99371 SHIPPING IS $3.00
