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 fourth in the series and commemorates the 1977 Ford Falcon Hardtop. The XC Falcon was an update of the XA/XB model of 1972 to 1976. The XC Hardtop was designed to fit wide-as-possible rubber and carried over the 351 cubic inch V8 from the legendary Phase III GT-HO. At that years Bathurst race the Moffat Team led by Alan Moffat took out first and second place in the race. Alan Moffat pulled rank to take the win off his team mate Colin Bond who had led for most of the race. While the XC was an evolution of Ford's dominant 1970s Falcon V8s, it will be forever remembered for the orchestrated Moffat-Bond 1-2 of 1977.
