The Royal Australian Mint released this NCLT 50 cent coin in 2008 to commemorate 25 years since Australia II's America's Cup victory in 1983. The coin was released in an unusual folding coincard which could be folded to resemble the famous Winged Keel.
This victory was attributed to the famous Lexcen-designed winged keel and ended the USA's 132-year winning streak in this sporting event.
