MintRoyal Australian Mint, Canberra, Australia (1965-date)
The Royal Australian Mint have released a set of seven 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 the cylinder head of an engine. The "Ford High Octane" tin was limited to a mintage of 10,000 and sold out from the RAM in less than 2 days.
Included in the tin was a non-coloured coin unique to the tin as well as the other six pad printed coins which could also be purchased separately with a further 20,000 minted of them all issued in large coincards.
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.
This coin was also released in a PNC by Australia Post. (7,500 Copies)
