This is the third coin in the series that pays tribute to Aviation and History, and commemorates the 70th anniversairy of the Berlin Airlift.

Designed in collaboration with famous comic designer, Romain Hugault, each year two aircraft will be honored.

The Dakota C47 was designed in 1936 by aircraft manufacturer McDonell-Douglas and was used for air transportation, in particular during D-Day in 1944. One of the aircraft’s most famous missions was the Berlin Airlift, initiated in 1948 to supply West Berlin with food and life-saving supplies because of the Soviet Blockade.

On the obverse, a Dakota C47 flies over Berlin and the Brandenburg gate, where children wait for supplies and wave to the pilots, and also the Berlin Airlift monument with a chain of small Dakotas, recalling the great humane effort. In the center, a quote from President John F. Kennedy - Icha bin ein Berliner - paying tribute to the Berlin Airlift in 1963.
