Avro 504K: After successful service over Europe during World War I and as a training and private use plane, QANTAS took delivery of its first aircraft the Avro 504K in 1921. This single engine wooden structured bi-plane carried two passengers and was used for joy flights, air taxi services and promoted the future advantages of air transport to thousands of Australians. The design on this coin is so life like you can almost feel the wind rushing by.

Airbus A380: The largest passenger jet ever built, the eagerly awaited Airbus A380 is capable of carrying 500 to 800 passengers and has a cruising speed of 900 km/h. This true giant of the air is 73 m in length, a 79 m wingspan and a total weight of 540,000 kg. With over one troy ounce of silver and 38.74 mm in diameter this $5 proof coin will also command plenty of attention.
