2019 $2 100th Anniv 1st Flight England to Australia 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the first flight from England to Australia, this Perth Mint silver coin features a free-spinning propeller in its centre!
Landing in Darwin at the end of 1919, the four crewmen had successfully travelled 17,910 kilometre flight in 28 days. Demonstrating that it could be achieved, these four men arguably opened the door for the long distance air travel that we know today.
Struck from two ounces of 99.99% pure silver, each First Flight Propeller coin is taken from a mintage of just 2,000 coins - a tiny figure!
