US Air Force Thunderbirds 50th Anniversary

In 1953, the Thunderbirds soared into service as the official flight demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force. Exhibiting the awesome power of the Air Force fleet, the Thunderbirds inspire and entertain spectators at more than 40 air shows throughout the country each year.

This coin celebrates the Thunderbirds' outstanding record of achievement over more than five decades of service.

While the reverse bears the squadron's classic emblem, the obverse features all eight of the aircraft flown by the Thunderbirds since 1953, including the following:

  • F-84 Thunderjet (1953 - 1955)
  • F-84F Thunderstreak (1955)
  • F-100 Super Sabre (1956 - 1964)
  • F-84F Thunderchief (1964)
  • F-100D Super Sabre (1964 - 1969)
  • F-4E Phantom II (1969 - 1974)
  • F-38A Talon (1974 - 1982)
  • F-16 Fighting Falcon (1983 - current)

The coin is minted in .999 pure silver with a proof strike. It comes packaged in a clear lucite capsule and is enclosed in a leatherette presentation box, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
