This is the fourth coin in the series that pays tribute to Aviation and History, and commemorates the first flight of the Transall in 1963.

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

The Transall C-160 is the result of a joint venture between France and Germany, through the companies MBB, Aerospatiale and VFW-Fokker. A twin-engined tactical transport, it first flew in 1963 and is only now being replaced by the latest Airbus A400M Atlas. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Tyne turboprop engines, the Transall has given sterling service over the last half century. Able to land on airstrips as short as 400m, a single Transall could airdrop 88 paratroopers and variants have been used for aerial refueling, electronic intelligence gathering, and communications.

On the reverse, a frontal look at the Transall unloading its paratrooper passenger cargo in mid-air over Mont Saint-Michel. The obverse is common to the range and depicts a pair of pilots against a backdrop of aircraft silhouettes.
