This series honoring the Centenary of the Great War was started in 2014, and highlights the experiences of the men and women during World War I.

This fourth issue illustrates the link between the military and civilian world by focusing on aviation.

The obverse shows families coming to see planes take off, a true attraction at the time. A plane is already in the sky between the poppy and the cornflower in the design, and, on the reverse, Geroges Guynemer’s SPAD is about to take off and flies overs a battlefield dominated by two Saint-Chamond tanks, representing how 1917 saw the first battles in which French tanks saw action. A doughboy is depicted in the foreground, representing the entry of the United States into the war.
