New Silver Coin Commemorating Australian Aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith

Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the untimely demise of Australia’s greatest aviation pioneer – Sir Charles Kingsford Smith (1897-1935) – this brilliantly designed precious metal Proof has inspired predictably strong demand.

2010 $1 Charles Kingsford Smith 1oz Silver Proof

Whilst interest in this official legal tender issue can be attributed to the iconic status of ‘Smithy’ – a national hero as big as Don Bradman and Phar Lap – the demand is largely due to the outstanding quality of the coin. Uniting one of the most famous portraits of Smithy with a depiction of his plane, the Southern Cross, contrasting beautifully with a fully ‘struck-up’ depiction of the globe, this exclusive release represents a dramatic combination of stunning full-colour and glorious Proof quality.
Commanding the attention of modern coin collectors, as well as aviation buffs, initial demand for the Perth Mint-struck 2010 $1 Kingsford Smith 1oz Silver Proof has soared sky-high. With the mintage restricted to 5,000, now is the time to guarantee supply of this memorable Silver Proof – whilst still available at Official Issue Price.
