2021 Supercars Ford XE Falcon 50c PNC
Dick Johnson, the likeable straight-talking Queenslander, self-built his 5.8-litre "Greens-Tuf" Ford FAlcon XE for the 1984 ATCC season, his chance at his third title in four years.
1984 was the last ATCC for the so-called "Big Bangers" - the cars built to Australia's unique Group C rules in the 1970's and early 1980's.
The imposing XE with its striking green livery benefited from some new technical freedoms. 335kW of power and 675Nm of torque were supported by enormous 19-inch diameter rear wheels with 14-inch wide tyres. The 'green monster' carried Johnson to his 1984 ATCC victory, narrowly beating his arch-rival Peter Brock.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated cupro nickel coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin's reverse and obverse designs.
The stamp and coin cover features an illustrated envelope featuring the 1984 Ford XE Falcon. It also includes an Australian $1.10c commemorative stamp and is post marked First Date of Issue 19 January 2021, Bathurst NSW 2795.
The coin's obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year-date and the monetary denomination.
