Centenary of the first crossing of the South Atlantic by plane
This crossing was achieved by using only internal means of navigation: a modified sextant and a course corrector. The design shows the representation of the Lusitânia seaplane, one of the three Fairey III biplanes that were used by the commander and pilot Sacadura Cabral and the navigator Gago Coutinho, accomplish the flight between Lisboa and Rio de Janeiro. The edge inscription reads ‘TRAVESSIA DO ATLÂNTICO SUL’. Below the plane, the inscription ‘PORTUGAL 1922-2022’. The Mintmark will be ‘CASA DA MOEDA’, the Portuguese name of the Mint.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
