50 or 60 amp breaker needed?

Have an 5 ton a/c that has 60 amp FUSE box outside next to it and but the breaker for the unit on the other side of the house next to the meter is a 50 amp BREAKER. The a/c keeps throwing the breaker (doesn't actually kick it over but have to turn in off and back on again to get power back to the unit). Should that be a 60 amp breaker? The unit outside says on the metal tag max 60 amps...???????

I would have a AC technician look at it.
50 amps should be enough for it.
