In 1958, “the King of Rock and Roll” was inducted into the US Army – and emerged two years later an even bigger star with a wider appeal. Capture that universal appeal by including this Elvis #1 Gold “Stuck On You” Coin in your collection of essential Elvis memorabilia. Elvis was determined to avoid special treatment during his military service, notably submitting to a military haircut (after which he joked, “Hair today, gone tomorrow”). Serving with the Third Armored “Spearhead” Division in Friedberg, Germany, Elvis ultimately achieved the rank of Sergeant E-5 and was officially discharged from active duty on March 5, 1960. Almost immediately, he went back into the recording studio for “Stuck on You,” which took a handful of weeks to reach #1, the thirteenth of Elvis’s records to achieve the top of the charts.

The reverse is a replica 45 RPM record of “Stuck on You.” Though you can’t play it on your phonograph or your CD player, this collectible version of the Elvis Presley® #1 hit triumphantly announcing his return to the entertainment world is a must for every Elvis Presley fan. Whether buying it as a gift or for yourself, it will serve as a tangible reminder of why so many are stuck – on the King.
