90 years after his passing, Phar Lap still resonates profoundly with us. The impact he had on a generation who suffered the ravages of the Great Depression reminds us of the importance of heroes in our lives to lift our spirits when all seems darkest. What gave Phar Lap an instant connection to the folk who lived through those dark days is that he was a battler, just like them. His size made him an unlikely candidate as a racehorse. But race he did and with each win came a realisation that if Phar Lap could overcome the odds, they could too. 90 years later that belief in self-worth has helped many folks through their own darkest days. And it’s heroes like Phar Lap who light the way. Join me now as we celebrate a life and a legend whose light will never fade. The “Phar Lap Gone But Not Forgotten Commemorative Coin” has been minted for anyone has tried, and it’s available only from The Bradford Exchange

Phar Lap and his strapper Tommy Woodcock made a formidable team who took Phar Lap’s success to new heights. Their bond continues to inspire those who know their story. As the full colour centrepiece of the coin’s design they represent the never-give-up attitude which lay at the heart of Phar Lap’s success. That success comes vibrantly to life in the minter’s art. Alongside the pair, a powerful relief image of the Red Terror racing on to yet another victory. This uplifting moment is made more poignant with the inclusion of trainer H.R. Telford tribute to his charge: “He had a heart as big as a lion. We lost our greatest pal.” The moving words “Gone but not forgotten” and the date of Phar Lap’s passing conclude the 24-carat gold-layered tribute which stands a reminder of one tried and who legend will inspire us always.
