Why buy this Antiqued 2019 $2 Australia 2 oz Silver 100th Anniversary First Flight from England to Australia?

On December 10th, 1919, a crew of five touched down in Darwin, Australia in the Vickers Aircraft. The landing completed a 28-day, 11,128-mile flight, the first ever from England to Australia. Now, Perth Mint is celebrating the centennial anniversary of the flight with this very limited mintage coin. Just 2,000 were struck, each one from 2 oz of .9999 fine silver. The iconic "P" mint mark is included on the reverse. The coin comes set in a plastic display case that has a clear lid. The case comes along with a certificate of authenticity in an illustrated shipper.

Exquisite Route Design

The coin has an inset spinning propeller that is visible in the center on both sides. That inset is encircled by the silver portion of the coin. At the top of the obverse is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem. Designed by Jody Clark, the image shows the monarch with her shoulders open to the holder. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is to her left, while "AUSTRALIA" is to her right. Inscriptions on the bottom half of the rim read, "2 OZ 9999 AG," "2019," AND "2 DOLLARS."

On the reverse is a map that includes Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. The Vickers aircraft in which the journey was made is included near the bottom. Inscriptions along the rim read, "CENTENARY OF FIRST FLIGHT" and "ENGLAND TO AUSTRALIA."
