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 tenth in the set and commemorates the Australian built "XC Falcon Cobra" that was produced in Ford's Broadmeadows Victoria factory in 1978. The XC Falcon Cobra was a limited edition iconic version of the 2 Door Falcon Hardtop Coupe which crushed the opposition at Bathurst in 1977 with the famous one-two finish . Only 400 were made and they all sold out in just days. Sporting either a 302ci or 351ci V8 engine the XC Falcon Cobra was of course only available as a 2 door Hardtop Coupe.
This coin was also released in the following PNC's ...
Standard Australia Post Blue Cover version, number of copies unknown
ANDA Perth Money Expo Grey Cover version, limited to 750 copies. (Issued in 2018, coin still dated 2017)
