Following on from the "Holden Heritage" 50 cent 12 coin Collector Tin set released in 2016, the Royal Australian Mint have released a set of 12 "Ford Australian Classics" 50 cent coins in 2017 also in a Collector Tin.
The coins were available in coin cards in the tin, which included a special coin unique only to the tin, with a mintage of only 10,000. The 10,000 tin sets with the unique coin sold out in less than 3 days.
The eleven other coloured coins could be purchased separately with a further 20,000 minted.
This particular coin is the fifth in the set and commemorates the Australian built "Cortina Consol MK1" that was produced in Ford's Broadmeadows Victoria factory between 1962 to 1967. The Cortina was essentially a locally-made version of a UK-market vehicle and was available as a 2 Door Sedan, 4 Door Sedan and 4 Door Van. The Australian built Ford Cortina GT won three successive Bathurst victories in 1963,64 & 65 before the era of the V8's dawned.
This coin was also released in the following PNC's ...
Standard Australia Post Yellow Cover version, number of copies unknown
ANDA Sydney Money Expo Brown Cover version, limited to 750 copies.
