The next coin released @royalaustmint for the Flying Through Time ~ Aviation series was the 2008 $5 Airbus A380 #silver coin which was released with the Avro 504K coin. As these coins were released as a pack they have the same mintage of 1,903. Well short of the maximum mintage of 7,000.
The Airbus A380 is the world's biggest passenger plane. Not only does this plane have the largest passenger capacity in aviation history, it also boasts greater fuel efficiency, aerodynamics and noise reduction.
The plane has enough space inside of it, Airbus says, to fit 35 million ping-pong balls, if you count its cargo hold along with its two main decks.
14th February 2019, Airbus announced it would stop producing the aircraft. The last vessels will be delivered in 2021.
