|Concorde's Last Flight Silver Medallion|
Obverse of 2003 Concorde's Last Flight Silver Medallion
A 2oz silver medallion commemorating Concorde's last flight, 24th October 2003 with a box and certificate produced by Westminster.
A limited edition of 500 medallions were produced.
Concorde was the result of an Anglo-French project to produce a supersonic passenger airliner. In 1969 it made its maiden flight, and began commercial service in 1976. Although Concorde was a stunning technical achievement (even the USSR and USA had tried and failed to build a supersonic passenger airliner) Concorde was a limited commercial success. Although it eventually managed to run operationally at a profit, its development costs were well in excess of a billion pounds, and the whole project up until the retirement of the last concorde in 2003 was probably a commercial net loss.
Nevertheless, Concorde gained great affection amongst the British people for giving a demonstration that, in spite of the diminishing place of Britain in the world, Britain was still capable of producing (with French help!!) great things.
Three concords flying, taking off and taxiing respectively.
