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 third in the series and commemorates the 1971 Ford Falcon GT-HO Phase III. This car was an iteration of the previous years Bathurst winning XW GT Phase II, which gave the XY a formidable arsenal; the iconic 351 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 with a huge Holley carburetter, iconic bonnet "shaker" and a 9-inch LSD at the rear. The Phase III was a sledgehammer that dominated Bathurst and all rivals through sheer brute force, with Alan Moffat heading a 1-2-3 finish to the 1971 race.
Australia Post also released this coin in a PNC (7,500 Copies)
Also released in a different cover at the ANDA Sydney Money Expo in a limited edition PNC (750 copies).
