2018 50c Coloured Unciruclated Coin - Holden Performance Vehicle Tin Set
For decades Australians have been entertained by intrepid drivers in race cars speeding towards victory around our nation’s many race tracks. In 2018, the Mint celebrates the history of Holden in motorsport with the release of a limited edition seven-coin collection, taking in some of the most celebrated race cars that claimed victory for Holden.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
Only days after the 2016 Holden Heritage Collection went on sale, the chequered flag fell on this SOLD-OUT and highly sought-after coin collection. In 2018 we’ve switched gears and shifted our focus to high-octane automotive collectibles, and proudly present the Holden Motorsport Collection. Motorsport is an undeniable part of Holden’s DNA, having raced its vehicles in Australia and overseas with remarkable success for more than 50 years. Holden’s race cars, including the Monaro, Torana and Commodore have become legendary for their feats, with some of the biggest names of the sport at the wheel. Cars have always been a highly collectable subject, and this set is no exception. Holden fans and numismatists alike can now be treated to this distinctive buying opportunity not likely to reappear anytime soon.
