Description

This exciting new coin celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first flight from England to Australia.

The first flight from England to Australia touched down in Darwin on 10 December, 1919. Piloting an open air cockpit Vickers ‘Vimy’ aircraft, Captain Ross Smith, Lieutenant Keith Smith and Sergeants Wally Shiers and James Bennett made the 17,910 kilometre flight in 28 days. The amazing feat in long-distance aviation was the catalyst to develop domestic air routes across northern Australia.
