Product Description

2010 Australian Centenary of Flight 1oz Silver Proof Coin

As an isolated nation, with a vast interior Australia had much to gainfrom the development of successful flying machines at the beginning of the 20th century. To promote interest in aviation, the Australian Aerial League invited Harry Houdini to demonstrate his flying skills while on tour here in 1910. The famous escapologist took-off at Diggers Rest, near Melbourne, on 18 March. A short flight of about a minute’s duration was followed by a second flight that saw him rise 100 feet, remaining airborne for almost five minutes. With a third successful attempt that day, Houdini is regarded as having completed the first sustained flight in Australia.
