To celebrate this Centenary of Powered Flight, the Isle of Man Government has approved the release of two superb crowns which portray the evolution of flight from 1903, through the intervening years to the present day.
Since Orville Wright climbed aboard the ‘Wright Flyer’ on 17th December 1903 and piloted the aircraft for 120 feet which made history as the first powered flying machine to have taken off from level ground, travel through the air and land under the control of its pilot, aviation has made remarkable progress and now aeroplanes carry millions of passengers all over the world and we can even fly to the moon and back.
The second coin features a further four aircraft which show the evolution of aviation from 1927 to the present day. The aircraft shown on this coin are:
Available in cupro nickel, proof sterling silver and proof fine 1/5oz gold, the precious metal versions are struck four times and feature frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background. The obverse of each coin bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
