Martinsyde G.100 Elephant
The First World War was the first time that aircraft had been used on a large scale in conflict. At the start of the war, aircraft were mainly used for tactical work and reconnaissance, but as the war developed, both sides started using them to drop bombs, and pilots became entangled in "dog fights". By the end of the war, the RAF was established, a significant division of the British forces. The role of these pilots became crucial to the war effort, just as much as the troops on the ground.
This 2017 coin honours the work that these early aviators did, and the sacrifices they made in this dangerous work for their country. The reverse design by Dan Flashman shows an aircraft of the period similar to the Martinsyde G.100 Elephant flying over country fields, with the caption "THE WAR IN THE AIR". The reverse features the 5th portrait by Jody Clark.
