2020 $1 Qantas Centenary 11 Coin Al/Br Set in Collector Case

In 2020 Qantas celebrates its centenary. Acknowledging this historic occasion, the Royal Australian Mint has released this collection of 11 - 2020 $1 proof coin.

Each coloured proof coin features an aircraft from the Qantas fleet over the century. The eleventh is a special copper coin paying homage to the original Australian Kangaroo Penny, the inspiration for the Qantas Flying Kangaroo logo.

Qantas, Australia's own pioneering are service, will celebrate its centenary in 2020. 

At its foundation in western Queensland in 1920, Qantas first consisted of two aircraft and three staff, serving remote communities in inland Australia. The airline continued to grow, assisting the Royal Flying Doctors in the provision of medical air in the outback, and supporting Australia with vital services during the Second World War, while maintaining crucial air contact with the United Kingdom.

As post-war Australia grew, Qantas continued to grow with the nation, bringing many new Australians to our shores, and allowing Australian to experience air travel for the first time. Now days Qantas is considered once of the world's leading long-distance airlines, connecting Australia with the world.

This coin collection includes 11 coloured $1 coins including a special commemorative copper coin to pay homage to the Kangaroo Penny, the design inspiration for the Qantas Flying Kangaroo logo.

Each coin is individually packaged and housed in a specially designed box.

Includes a timeline of Qantas' history.

Each coin's obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark.

The coins are not available separately and are issued as Australian Legal tender.
