Opportunities for Australian composers in the late nineteeth and early twentieth centuries were limited by demography, economics and variable musical standards. Many important figures such as Arthur Benjamin , Margaret Sutherland , Miriam Hyde and Esther Rofe spent extended periods, if not entire careers, elsewhere. Benjamin, who settled in Britain and later Canada, spent some of the First World War as a prisoner of war; sadly, Frederick Septimus Kelly , a promising composer recently rescued from obscurity by John Carmody and musicologist Thérèse Radic, was killed.

Alfred Hill , who studied in Leipzig in the late 1880s, returned to the Antipodes determined to raise standards. He composed the music for the Federation Celebrations in 1901, and with Fritz Hart , formed the Australian Opera League in 1912 to perform works like A Moorish Maid, or queen of the Riffs . The same year, colourful, Melbourne-based composer George Marshall-Hall produced his opera, Stella . Hill was also involved in the foundation of the NSW Conservatorium at the time.

Orchestras in the major cities varied in size, constitution and quality, a situation gradually remedied by the creation of the Australian Broadcasting Commission (later Corporation), and its assumption of responsibility for the orchestras in the 1930s. The ABC established composer competitions in the 1930s, which benefitted a number of hopefuls such as Clive Douglas and Miriam Hyde, and pianist/composer Roy Agnew ’s radio broadcasts in that decade seriously raised musical consciousness.

Ford began manufacturing in Australia in 1925 when Geelong was selected as the site for its first local factory. Creating thousands of jobs within Ford Australia and nurturing hundreds of local suppliers.

The effect of locally manufactured automobiles on our lives was significant – the daily lives of Australians were transformed in terms of how we arrived to work or social events, and how we explored our expansive country. As illustrated by the extreme popularity of other recent automotive-themed coin products, cars capture the imaginations of many collectors. The Mint has worked in close collaboration with Ford Australia to bring you this limited edition collection .
