   • Highlighting the major aircraft along its adventure

Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major aircraft along its adventure. Every year two planes are honored. 

Plane designed in 1936 by aircraft manufacturer McDonell Douglas, it was used for air transport, in particular during D-Day in 1944. One of the plane’s most famous missions was the Berlin airlift set up in 1948 to supply West Berlin, which was cut off by the Soviet Blockade. 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the event.
On the obverse, a Dakota flies over Berlin and the Brandebourg gate where children wait for supplies and wave to the pilots. On the sides, the Berlin Airlift monument, with a chain of small Dakotas, recalling the great humane operation. In the center, a quote from President JF Kennedy, paying tribute to the Berlin Airlift in 1963.
