PRODUCT DETAILS
Opening its doors in February 1965, the Royal Australian Mint has produced more than fifteen billion circulating coins. The demand for proof and uncirculated versions of coins resulted in the Mint’s expansion into producing high quality collector's coins, with their emphasis on quality systems and innovative technology continuing to this day.

This Centenary Of The Great Air Race eight coin collection is housed in a gleaming silver metallic tin as a tribute to the Great Air Race - the first flight from England to Australia in 1919, considered one of the greatest achievements in aviation history.

In 1919, Australian aviator Ross Smith and his brother Keith won the England to Australia Air Race in their Vickers Vimy aeroplane. Taking off from London on the 12th November and arriving in Darwin on the 10th December, the journey was the first flight from Great Britain to Australia and represented a major leap forward for commercial aviation. This event was the catalyst to develop domestic air routes across Northern Australia.
