Title: Jets on coins
Post by: Bimat on May 03, 2009, 10:58:05 AM
North Korea also had a FAO issue in 2002 with jet plane on reverse side. (Denomination : Half Chon,KM# 194). Here is a pic.

If I am asked to choose one best FAO coin,I will choose one from this series from N.Korea.These coins are struck at Pobjoy mint (Correct me if I a wrong)

I am hard pressed to see the connection between food security and airplanes, unless the N. Koreans mean that since their system is systematically unable to grow enough food for the population, food security means compulsory food aid ;)

Does Schön mention the type of aircraft? At first sight it looks like an ancient French Caravelle, but the wing tips are al wrong ...

No type specified in the catalog. However, the other coins in that series have transportation related designs too: a galley, a Viking ship, a train, this aircraft (those four are 0.50 jeon coins), a steam locomotive (1.00) and cars (1.00 and 2.00). Will refrain from any comment about the galley ... ;)

Here's my latest aircraft on a coin, an airbus A380, the pride of the Airbus fleet. In the other fields you can see a Concorde, a Zeppelin, a helicopter, the ISS, a balloon, Lilienthal's glider. I believe the balloon is the Montgolfier and the helicopter may be a Sikorski S 55. The bat wing left below could be a reference to Icarus.

Ukraine, 5 hryvnia 2005. AN-124.
Ukraine, 2 hryvnia 2006. Oleg Antonov, the 100th anniversary of the birth.

The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (NATO reporting name: Condor). It was designed by the Antonov design bureau in the Ukrainian SSR. The first flight 24.12.1982. Heavy long-range military transport aircraft - the largest military transport aircraft in the world.

The design of the front and rear cargo ramp is my modest development.
In 1998, the An-124 as part of the technical crew, I flew along the route: Ukraine - Ireland - Canada - USA - Argentina - Mexico - Switzerland - Ukraine.

Impressive story. Was it a smooth ride? Never got to see the An-124 live, but I did see an empty Globemaster III in Frankfurt once. Cavernous!

There is a Concorde parked on Orly airport, near my home. An elegant bird, but cramped inside.

The flight was superb. The crew of the aircraft was test pilots. Landings were top class.
Peter, you can see a demonstration flight of AN-124 here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp9lefikSYU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp9lefikSYU)

Yes, Concord elegant bird. I saw Concord on the museum parking Airbus SAS (Toulouse).
Scheme aircraft and construction and design of the cockpit is close to the ideal.
