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.
