Realistic Wright Brothers design by Donna Weaver

Donna Weaver designed the obverse of this coin, which features overlapping images of Orville and Wilbur Wright, whose names are inscribed under it. Both of the men are dressed in suits, and their shoulders are turned slightly away from the holder. The years of the flight and anniversary, "1903" and "2003," are inscribed to the right. Also included is an inscription that notes the event for which the coin was issued, "FIRST FLIGHT CENTENNIAL."

On the reverse is a familiar image of the first flight, which Orville took on their plane, the Wright Flyer. An eagle is shown with its wings spread above the plane. "TEN DOLLARS" is included on the bottom.
