Built for Australians, by Australians.
This simple premise ignited the manufacturing sector with the affordable Model T. Manufactured in Geelong, the popularity of the Model T would drive demand for manufacturing operations to spread across the country.
Ford began manufacturing in Australia in 1925 when Geelong was selected as the site for its first local factory. Creating thousands of jobs within Ford Australia and nurturing hundreds of local suppliers, the effect of locally manufactured automobiles on our lives was significant – the daily lives of Australians were transformed in terms of how we explored our expansive country.
Illustrated by the extreme popularity of other recent automotive-themed coin products, cars capture the imaginations of many collectors. Some are lucky enough to collect the cars themselves, others are happy with high-end scale replicas, but everybody with an attachment to Ford can collect the coins featuring their favourite, classic cars.
The Mint has worked in close collaboration with Ford Australia to bring you this limited edition collection, which includes the rare Ford Australia, The Manufacturing Era 1925 – 2016 uncirculated 50c coin.
The special anniversary coin, as well as the limited edition Ford Australian Classic Collection tin, is only available when purchasing the collection in its entirety!
