Offering a non-stop thrill ride for millions of fans across the country each year, the Navy's Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds of the U.S. Air Force are America's elite aviation performers.

Blue Angels

Founded in 1946, the Blue Angels hold the distinction of being the U.S. Military's s first official flight demonstration squadron. Pioneers in the mold of the Wright Brothers, the first Blue Angels pilots set the standard for excellence in aviation demonstration.

This coin is dedicated to the pilots of the Navy's famous flight demonstration squadron, who embody America's adventurous spirit. Depicted on the obverse is the Wright Brothers' legendary bi-plane flying above the FA-18 of the Blue Angels. The reverse bears the Blue Angels' seal.

Thunderbirds

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 success over more than fifty years of service. The obverse features all eight of the aircraft flown by the Thunderbirds since their inception more than fifty years ago. The reverse bears the Thunderbirds' official seal

Minted in .999 pure silver and selectively plated with 24k gold, each exquisite piece comes sealed in its own tarnish-resistant Lucite capsule. Offered as a set, the coins are mounted together in a museum-quality leatherette presentation box and are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
