Australian 1997 Proof Six Coin Year Set – Sir Charles Kingsford Smith
The World’s Greatest Pioneering Aviator
1897 - 1935
Sir Charles Kingsford Smith is regarded as the greatest man ever to fly. His name is held in the same esteem as aviation luminaries such as the Wright Brothers and General Chuck Yeager, the first man to break the sound barrier. He is most known for two record breaking adventures – circumnavigating continental Australia and crossing the Pacific Ocean. Altogether in his short life Sir Charles achieved 16 flying records at the controls of various aeroplanes that modern aeronautics defines as dinosaurs.
1997 represents the centenary of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith’s birth. The Royal Australian Mint, in their tradition of honouring an Australian who has greatly contributed to country, released this special $1 coin, as part of the 1997 proof coin set, featuring Sir Charles Kingsford Smith.
