Comments

Commemorating the groundbreaking achievement of the first flight from England to Australia, this coin portrays a representation of the open cockpit Vickers ‘Vimy’ aircraft that made the 17,000-kilometre journey in 1919.
An Australian crew comprising Captain Ross Smith, his brother Lieutenant Keith Smith, Sergeant Wally Shiers and Sergeant James Bennett navigated the converted ex-WWI bomber from London to Darwin within 28 days, landing on December 10.
