FORD AUSTRALIA - THE MANUFACTURING ERA
Engraver: A. Baggio
12 Sided Smooth
Following on from the "Holden Heritage" 50 cent twelve coin set released in 2016, the Royal Australian Mint have released a set of twelve "Ford Australian Classics" 50 cent coins in 2017. The coins were available in coin cards in a special tin, which included a coin unique to the tin, with a mintage of 10,000, or could be purchased separately with a further 20,000 minted of the pad printed coins. The 10,000 tin sets with the unique coin sold out in less than 3 days.
This particular coin is the twelfth in the series and is unique to the 12 coin tin set . It commemorates the Manufacturing Era of Ford Australia which began a motoring legacy that ran from 1925 in Geelong, where the Model T was produced, to 2016 in Broadmeadows when Ford Australia built the last Falcon Sedan (an FGX), in October of 2016. Thus bringing to an end 91 years of Ford manufacturing in Australia. Which also saw one of the world's longest-running nameplates, The Falcon, come to an end.
