Collectors, this might be one to hold onto: the Royal Australian Mint is celebrating 90 years of one of the world's great railway journeys with a special edition 50 cent coin.
The mint won't be releasing the coin into circulation and only 30,000 have been made.
Coloured red, the coins are marked with an image depicting the iconic Australian train.
As well as the special edition coin, the mint has launched a competition to win two tickets to travel the route, which is now a luxury tourist experience in its own right.
Royal Australian Mint CEO, Ross MacDiarmid said the new coin celebrates one of Australia's most famous railway journeys.
"This striking limited edition coin tells the story of one of the world's great railway journeys and the Royal Australian Mint is excited to share yet another new coin with train lovers, coin collectors, fans of The Ghan and the Australian public," Mr MacDiarmid said.
The 90th Anniversary of The Ghan coin can be purchased for $15 and are Australian legal tender.
Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions managing director, Steve Kernaghan said he is thrilled to be partnering with the Royal Australian Mint to share a special edition coin that gives a nod to the legendary train, which passes through Katherine.
"The Ghan is a national icon and celebrating 90 years of adventure across the country is a significant achievement," said Mr Kernaghan.
In 1929, the Afghan Express steam train commenced its first route to Alice Springs, once know as Stuart.
In its early days, the train journey could be unpredictable, and was once famously stranded in the desert for two weeks.
