2016 marks 160 years since the Holden story began. From early beginnings as a leather and saddlery business – JA Holden and Co. of Adelaide – by 1948, the business had moved from horse power to motor power! On 29 November 1948, the prime minister of Australia, Ben Chifley, unveiled the first Holden, a family sedan named the 48-215 (FX) – Australia’s own car.

Released in time for Father’s Day 2016, the collection included two postal and numismatic covers, with a specially produced 50c coin. The first cover features a 1968 HK Holden Monaro GTS and the second a 1953 FJ Holden, which was actually used as an Australia Post postal delivery van.
