  • £51.61

This series of Aviation & History coins are produced by Monnaie de Paris, France’s oldest continuously operating minting institution, founded in 864. This silver coin has a nominal value of 50€, however they are traded at a much higher price on the bullion coin market due to the state-of-the-art know-how of the Monnaie de Paris craftsmen who are able to expertly and creatively engrave precious metals.

This 2017 Aviation & History Airbus 10€ silver coin bears a modern yet classically inspired design. With an impressive fineness of 900 and a unique look, the obverse depicts the Airbus A380 four-engine jetliner flying above the clouds and a globe with longitudinal and latitudinal lines appears in the background. The first commercial flight travelled nearly 6,000 kilometres in 7 hours, and the number of passengers who auctioned to travel on the first journey and the year 2007 are inscribed along with the yeardate. The reverse features the profiles of two pilots, symbolising different eras and uses of aviation: civil and military, through the depiction of different types of aircraft.
