|1976 Concorde's First Flight|
Interestingly, the Russians built a competitor to Concord, the Tupolev T144, popularly known as Concordski. It was built using plans stolen from the French, had its first flight two months before Concorde, but had a bad safety record, and finished operating in 1985. Many people have already forgotten it.
The demand for Concorde memorabilia seems to have grown recently with the announcement of Concorde's retirement. Perhaps many people who have flown Concorde wish to have a lasting souvenir, and those who have never flown Concorde, and now will never get the opportunity again, also wish to own a piece of aviation history. Who knows when supersonic passenger travel will next be available?
The obverse shows Concorde flying over the White House in Washington D.C., with the inscription.
TO COMMEMORATE THE FIRST SCHEDULED PASSENGER SERVICE

The reverse shows the American eagle taking off clutching laurel wreaths, with two flags in the background. There is no inscription except for the date 1976
