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 seventh in the series and commemorates the 2006 Ford BA Falcon. Bathurst can take an emotional toll on drivers and teams, but for 2006, the emotion of Peter Brock's death in the weeks leading up to the Great Race cast a cloud over the mountain. For a devastated Ford driver and former Brock protégé Craig Lowndes, it was fitting that he won what was the first Great Race to offer "The Peter Brock Trophy", aboard his BA Falcon. What's more, Lowndes and co-driver Jamie Whincup went on to win Bathurst in a BA Ford Falcon in 2007 and BF Falcon 2008, the only men to score a three-peat at the mountain, other than Brock and his co-drivers.
