Royal Australian Mint 2023 50c UNC Coin 60th Anniversary of the Bathurst Great Race PNC



The Bathurst 1000, (currently known as the Repco Bathurst 1000), stands as a pinnacle in motorsport history. This annual 1000-kilometre touring car race takes place on the Mount Panorama Circuit, nestled in the scenic expanse of Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. A cornerstone of the Repco Supercars Championship, the event's legacy stretches back to the 1960 Armstrong 500 at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, finding its enduring home in Bathurst in 1963; and this year celebrating the 60th anniversary of this famous event. Known as 'The Great Race', it embodies endurance as drivers navigate the unforgiving Mount Panorama track. The atmosphere, charged with roaring engines, thunderous noise, and collective anticipation, culminates in triumphant podium moments, immortalising motorsport heroes.
