In 2018, the Mint celebrates an icon of Australian motor racing, recognising Ford's contribution to our racing culture, with the release of the Ford Motorsport Collection featuring the most celebrated race cars the marque has produced. Presented in a colourful, automotive inspired tin and including a special Ford motorsport coin, only available in the complete set, this collection is perfect for the passionate Ford fan, and all Australian motorsport enthusiasts.

1969 Mustang Boss 302 Trans-Am

Built in the same Kar Kraft workshop as the 1966-1969 Le Mans-winning GT40s, this American bred Mustang was not just ground-breaking for Australia – its specification was yet to race in its homeland. While the BOSS 302 wasn’t the biggest V8 around, the Mustang’s balance of power, aero and handling saw many victories on Australian soil. Inspired by a truly classic two-door and formidable racer.

1971 XY Falcon GT-HO Phase III

It is impossible to discuss Australian motorsport history without mention of the famous XY Falcon GT-HO Phase III. While the arrival of V8s from Ford, Holden and Chrysler had seeded the muscle car era in the 1960s, the arms-race to develop these machines resulted in what has become a motoring and cultural icon. Colour printed on this collectable coin in prominent track red

1977 XC Falcon Hardtop

Created solely to win races in Australia, this Ford Falcon XC Hardtop was explicitly designed to fit the widest tyres possible under the wheel arches, in the hope of providing maximum traction. This search for grip was unsurprising given that the roaring 351 cubic-inch V8 under the bonnet was producing approximately 500 horsepower. Colour printed in race livery

1981 XD Falcon 'Tru Blu'

Australia’s idea of a ‘fair go’ was rewarded in 1981, when Queenslander Dick Johnson took victory at Bathurst in the ‘Tru-Blu’ XD Falcon, with co-driver John French. Recovering from ‘The Rock’ incident of the previous year, the struggling Johnson took the fight to his big-budget rivals; his victory tugging at the heartstrings of Australian racing fans. This distinctive coloured 50c coin captures the Tru-Blu essence of the 1981 XD Falcon

1989 Sierra RS500 Cosworth

Two decades after the Falcon GT’s first V8 win, the four-cylinder turbocharged Ford Sierra RS500 gob-smacked Australian motor racing when European teams brought them to Bathurst in 1987. Harnessing the power of four cylinders and forced induction, confirmed Ford’s dominance of the Australian Touring Car Championships of 1988 and 1989. This unique colour printed coin celebrates the David and Goliath story of Australian motorsport

2006 BA Falcon

Pushing Bathurst lap times ever closer to the two-minute mark are the modern-day machines of Australian motorsport. This era has been ushered in by the likes of the 2006 BA Falcon, this super-car boasting output beyond 600 horsepower, and featuring the perfect mix of cutting-edge technology to keep it on the track.
