To co­in­cide with the re­lease of 12 new 50-cent coins show­cas­ing Ford and Holden tour­ing cars, the Royal Aus­tralian Mint has launched ‘Aus­tralia’s rst Rev­eren­dum’ to de­cide the coun­try’s favourite Holden and Ford race­cars.

“To cel­e­brate the new coins,” says Ross MacDiarmid, the Royal Aus­tralian Mint’s CEO, “we are call­ing on all Aussies to have their say in Aus­tralia’s rst ever Rev­eren­dum.”

To take part in the Rev­eren­dum, fans can cast their vote for their favourite on ei­ther the Ford or Holden ded­i­cated web­sites. Vot­ing is avail­able for two weeks, af­ter which Aus­tralia’s favourite Ford and Holden will be an­nounced.

A to­tal of 30,000 of each design have been re­leased for pur­chase in a pre­sen­ta­tion card with ve­hi­cle in­for­ma­tion. The coins are le­gal ten­der as well as be­ing col­lec­tor’s items. In­di­vid­ual coins sell for $15.00.
