The Coin Company is proud to present 60th Anniversary of the Bathurst 1000 2023 50c Coloured Uncirculated Coin by The Royal Australian Mint.
Australia’s ‘Great Race’ at Bathurst reaches a special milestone in 2023, the 60th anniversary of its first running in 1963 at the world-famous Mount Panorama circuit. Synonymous with being a test of driver and machine against the challenging circuit and built on the rivalry between Holden and Ford, the race has made drivers and their cars into legends.
An Australian sporting institution, the Great Race has provided a true endurance test of driver and machine, as the best racers in the country – and indeed world – have challenged the mighty Mountain.
Built on the back of the legendary Holden and Ford rivalry, the annual race has made household names of Peter Brock, Allan Moffat, Dick Johnson and so many more, including the fearless women who have challenged the race. From its beginnings in the 1960s as a 500-mile race for standard production cars, the Great Race has evolved into an annual multi-million-dollar battle between purpose-built, millimetre-perfect V8-powered Supercars.
60th Anniversary of the Bathurst 1000 2023 50c Coloured Uncirculated Coin has a limited mintage of 40,000
