To commemorate the 150th running of the race that stops a nation, the Royal Australian Mint has released this 50c uncirculated coin.

The 1861 race had seventeen starters with a crowd of just 4000 spectators. Today it is broadcast worldwide to an audience of around 700 million. The Melbourne Cup has become an integral part of Australia culture that it is almost impossible to imagine the country without it.
