Comments

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.

The 1972 LJ Torana models picked up features and refinements from the landmark Holden HQ series released the year prior. The hottest of all the small Toranas was the mighty LJ GTR XU-1. The XU-1 model incorporated a number of high performance features which boosted its bhp to 190 at 5600 rpm. The LJ GTR XU-1 was piloted to victory in the Hardie-Ferodo 500 (Bathurst 1000) at Mt Panorama by a young Peter Brock.

This coin was also issued in a PNC by Australia Post (8,000 Copies)
