The Royal Australian Mint released this $1 dollar coin into circulation in February 2020. The commemorative $1 coin depicts a stylised B787-9 Dreamliner flying through the number 100, a hundred years since QANTAS was founded in November 1920 - the third oldest airline in the world.
Originally Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, shortened to the acronym QANTAS, is also known fondly as the flying kangaroo -with an impeccable safety record. The coin design includes parallel lines in the plane's wake to signify movement and progression in the airlines 100 year history. This Dreamliner aircraft with the QANTAS badge flew the first non-stop flight between Perth and London in 2018 and QANTAS was the first to complete the longest commercial flight between New York and Sydney in 2019.
