Royal Australian Mint 2020 $1 1/2 oz Silver Proof Coin Qantas Centenary


This stunning 2020 ½ oz Fine Silver Proof Coin has been created in
celebration of the centenary of Qantas – Australia’s own ‘Flying
Kangaroo’. Qantas staff past and present, aviation enthusiasts and coin
collectors will all treasure this memento of our pioneering air service.

The story of Qantas is a story of connection. From a tiny company of two
aircraft and three staff, it started by allowing graziers to connect across
some of Australia’s most difficult terrain. Through its connections with
the Royal Flying Doctors, Qantas helped to bring medical aid to
Australians in remote areas. During the Second World War, it maintained
air contact with the United Kingdom and its technology and staff carried
out vital air services.

The post-war history of Qantas runs parallel to Australia’s history of
expansion and connection with the rest of the world. Thanks to Qantas,
travel to and from Australia became a possibility for the wider population.
Today Qantas connects Australians with each other and the world, both
physically through its flight services, and also through the history that it
shared with the developing nation.

Kangaroo and a stylised Boeing Dreamliner flying over the 100 to
