2019 $1 100th Anniversary of the First Flight - England to Australia Coin & Stamp Cover PNC

An ideal collectable for fans of aviation and history, this commemorative coin and stamp cover commemorates the extraordinary feat achieved 100 years ago of the first flight from England to Australia.

The 17,000 kilometre journey was completed in an open cockpit Vickers 'Vimy' aircraft by an Australian crew comprising Captain Ross Smith, his brother Lieutenant Keith Smith, Sergeant Wally Shiers and Sergeant James Bennett. Taking off from London on 12 November 1919, the men braved extreme weather conditions to land in Darwin 28 days later on December 10.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin's reverse and obverse designs.

The coin's reverse features a representation of the converted ex-WWI bomber that made the harrowing expedition and a map of the flight path. The design includes the inscription 'CENTENARY OF FIRST FLIGHT ENGLAND TO AUSTRALIA' and The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark.

Affixed to the envelop is on official Australia Post $1 stamp. The stamp is postmarked for the first day of issue and the envelope includes Australia Post's seal of Authenticity.

Post marked the First Day of Issue 1 October 2019, Fanny Bay (Parap) NT 0820.

Features a commemorative $1 stamp.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II sculpted by Jody Clark.

Each coin is issued as Australian Legal Tender.
