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 Boeing 747-238B arrived in Sydney in September 1971, introducing a new wide-body, twin-deck
cabin with amenities including: inflight audio-visual entertainment, electric shaver bars and an upstairs Captain
Cook Lounge for First Class passengers. A bright floral cabin crew uniform by Emilio Pucci set an informal
tone for travelling, while lower airfares and greater capacity made international airtravel accessible to most
Australians for the first time.
In 1974, a Qantas 747 carried a record 673 passengers during the evacuation of Darwin following Cyclone Tracy. Between 1979 and 1985, Qantas had an all-747 fleet and in 1979 introduced the First Business Class cabin. Qantas has operated a total of 65 Boeing 747 aircraft since 1971.
