Description:

Highlighted by a genuine piece of the fabric used to cover the famous Graf Zeppelin airship, we are delighted to present this imposing tribute to aeronautical pioneer and creator of the rigid airship, Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin (1838-1917).

Inspired by hot-air balloons whilst serving as a volunteer for the Union Army during the 1861-65 American Civil War, von Zeppelin spent several decades refining his vision of a rigid airship until, in 1900, the first successful airship was launched - the Zeppelin LZ1. Used for both military and civilian transport, von Zeppelin's important invention had safely transported over 34,000 passengers on more than 1,600 flights by 1914. Having had a tremendous, if brief, impact on the world of air travel, the crash of the Hindenburg in the USA in 1937 brought 'The Golden Age of the Airship' to an end.


Unique, dramatic and imposing, this exclusive legal tender coin forms an inspiring, innovative celebration of this key period in aviation history. Graced with a portrait of Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin on the reverse, the obverse of this stunning High Relief coin depicts the giant Graf Zeppelin airship - built in honour of von Zeppelin in 1928. The perfect finishing touch, each coin also features a genuine piece of the fabric used to cover the famous Graf Zeppelin airship!

With the mintage of 499 coins already sold out, our stocks are sure to be devastated by demand. Immediate action is a must!
