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 Holden EH was the most dramatic model since the 48-215 in 1948. Clever styling changes gave it a streamlined low profile body, while a fuel efficient ‘Red’ engine provided 33 per cent to 53 per cent more power in 179 form which made the EH ideal for towing. The EH was arguably one of the most loved Holdens of all time, owing much of its success to its universal appeal. In just 18 months, Australians bought 256,959 EH Holdens, making it the fastest selling car in the country to date.
