Description

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft designed and built by Lockheed, and now maintained and upgraded by its successor, Lockheed Martin. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsized and oversized loads, including all air-certifiable cargo. The Galaxy has many similarities to the smaller Lockheed C-141 Starlifter and the later Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world.

Minted from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this C-5 coin pays homage to this unfaltering mainstay of U.S. Air Force aviation, its aircrews, maintenance, and logistical support personnel. The obverse features the aircraft in flight as a sentinel of freedom as it has been since 1970, with a schematic representation of the aircraft behind. The reverse displays the USAF emblem.

This item measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
