To commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the first ever test flight of the great Concorde this fantastic commemorative coin was introduce by Pobjoy Mint on behalf of the Isle of Man Government.

The Concorde was so fast that it was able to cut flying time to New York from seven hours forty minutes to three hours twenty-five minutes. Concorde's test flight reached 10,000ft (3,000m), but it’s speed never ascended over 300mph (480kph), compared to the speed of 1,300mph (2,080kph) which it eventually reached in commercial flights. 

The first supersonic flight was completed on the 1st October 1969 and went on to take its first commercial flights on the 21st January 1976 when British Airways flew from London Heathrow to Bahrain and Air France from Paris to Rio.

The striking design on the coin depicts Concorde in flight with five world famous landmarks underneath Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Statue of Liberty, Christ Redeemer and Bahrain Trade Centre. The landmarks on this coin represent the 5 main countries that Concorde flew to. The wording ‘40th ANNIVERSARY OF CONCORDE TEST FLIGHT’ is in the surround.
