A chapter of Australian history is ending this year - with General Motors announcing the closure of the Holden brand for good. This is a devastating blow for car enthusiasts and the industry alike. Now, Macquarie Mint is launching the Holden Legacy Collection to remember the Australian legends.
Since the 1940s Holden has been raising the bar for Australian car manufacturing. Their desire to build ‘Australia’s Own Car’ resulted in the release of the ’48-215’ – simply known as the ‘Holden’.
Holden continued to produce a range of vehicles over the next 70 years. In that time, they released some of the most affordable high-performance cars on the market.
Generations of Australians have owned, driven, raced or modified a Holden. The good memories of most Australian’s involve a Holden or two.
Nine Commemorative Collection Honouring Holden
The 24-carat gold-plated commemoratives come housed in a FREE collection folder. Highly exclusive, the Holden Legacy Collection has a limited edition of just 10,000 collections worldwide. Officially licensed by Holden, this collection is a must-have for Holden fans! The Holden Legacy Collection features nine of the most iconic Holdens, with designs based on classic Holden advertising material.
Each medallion includes a free collector postcard, featuring the full design of the respective Holden Ad.
Some of the commemoratives feature…
VFII Commodore Redline - The final vehicle to leave the Lion brand’s South Australian manufacturing line before production ceased. The most powerful Commodore ever, this car represents 39-years of Commodore manufacturing history.
HX Kingswood – Luxury and comfort at the right price! Owned by many families in the 70s, Gen Xers are likely to remember sitting in the back on family trips.
FJ Ute - A classic from the 1950s, the FJ Ute was considered an ‘all Australian car’. Many Aussies owned this as their first vehicle.
HK Monaro - Monaros have been in and out of production over the years. The original HK GTS featured the option of two Chevrolet V8s.
48-215 – ‘Australia’s Own Car’, produced in Fisherman’s Bend in 1948. The landmark car managed to wow everyone on launch day. Then PM, Ben Chifley, even exclaimed ‘She’s a beauty!’
