2019 2 oz 100th Anniversary of The First Flight England to Australia Antique Finish Silver Coin
The coin’s reverse depicts a map with the flight’s route marked above an illustration of a mountainous landscape. In the foreground is a representation of the Vickers aircraft. The centre of the coin features a propeller inset. The design includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the inscription ‘CENTENARY OF FIRST FLIGHT’ and ‘ENGLAND TO AUSTRALIA’.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, the coin’s weight, and fineness, and the 2019 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse. The propeller inset is bordered by a pattern of lines portraying wind and movement.
In keeping with its historical theme, the coin has been ‘antiqued’ by hand to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an aged artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin in the limited mintage may vary.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
