This 2008 Australia II 50c coin was released by the Royal Australian Mint as a collector coin not intended for general circulation. This is known as NCLT or non-circulating legal tender.
The coin commemorates 25 years since Australia II's America's Cup victory in 1983. This victory was attributed to the famous Lexcen-designed winged keel and ended the USA's 132 year winning streak in this sporting event.
