This NCLT coin was initially released by the RAM as part of a limited edition metal box set of Holden Heritage 50 cent coins.
There were ten other pad printed coins in the set and one non-pad printed coin. Only 7500 Limited Edition sets were made and the only way to get the non-pad printed coin was as part of this set. Each coin in the set was issued in a coincard.
Later the eleven Pad-Printed coins were available separately in their coincards.
Launched in March 1980, the VC Commodore was declared by Wheels magazine at the time to be ‘easily the best Australian car ever’, (It wasn't, Ford's XD Falcon was a much better car). The VC ensured Holden kept its place as Australia’s top car producer. The Blue XT5 engine gave the VC up to 25 per cent more power and 15 per cent more fuel economy than the previous VB. Driving a VC, Peter Brock won the Bathurst 1000 in 1980. Brock’s record nine wins at Bathurst between 1972 and 1987 were in either Commodores or Toranas.
