MUSTANG BOSS 302
The Royal Australian Mint have released a set of NCLT "Ford High Octane" 50 cent coins to commemorate Australia's Motorsport Legends. The coins were available in coin cards in a special tin that resembles the top of a cylinder head , which included a coin unique to the tin, with a mintage of 10,000, or the other six pad printed coins could be purchased separately with a further 20,000 minted of them. The 10,000 Ford tin sets with the unique coin sold out from the RAM in less than 2 days.
This particular coin is the second in the series and commemorates the 1969 Mustang Boss 302 Trans-Am. This car, which was a full factory import gift from Ford North America, was raced by an, at the time young, Canadian driver called Allan Moffat. A hardened, determined Moffat was resolute in becoming Australia's first professional race driver, and the Mustang was the state-of-the-art warhorse he raced towards stardom. The Mustang had a win rate of 101 wins in 151 races between 1969-1974.
