Released jointly by the RAM and QANTAS in a Box Set of eleven coins is this NCLT Aluminium-bronze coloured $1 coin that commemorates 100 Years of the Australian Airline QANTAS. Nine other coins in the set are also the usual Aluminium-bronze however one of the coins is larger than normal and is made from Copper. The coin was issued in a coincard inside a folding red box.
The ﬁrst Qantas aircraft was an Avro 504 biplane built in Sydney with a Dyak engine. The Avro was mostly used
for joy ﬂights and charter work, promoting aviation and giving many outback residents their ﬁrst experience
of air travel. These ﬂying tours also raised much-needed capital through share sates.
In November 1922, the ﬁrst scheduled Qantas services began using two war-surplus F.K.8 aircraft between Charleville, Longreach and Cloncurry carrying passengers and air mail. Qantas built eight DH.50 aircraft at Longreach, opened two flying schools and provided the ﬁrst aircraft for the ﬂying doctor service in 1928 before operations moved to Brisbane in 1930.
