Description

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 arrived to work or social events, and how we explored our expansive country. As illustrated by the extreme popularity of other recent automotive-themed coin products, cars capture the imaginations of many collectors. The Mint has worked in close collaboration with Ford Australia to bring you this limited edition collection.

Of the many Ford car models produced, eleven have been selected for The Ford Australian Classic Coin Collection;

  • 1925 - 1928 Ford Model T,
  • 1934 Ford Model 40 Ute,
  • 1952 - 1959 Ford Mainline Coupe-Utility,
  • 1960 - 1962 Ford Falcon XK,
  • 1962 - 1967 Ford Cortina MKI,
  • 1966 - 1968 Ford Falcon XR GT,
  • 1970 - 1972 Ford Falcon XY GT-HO Phase III,
  • 1971 - 1973 Ford Falcon XA,
