    I'll start this thread out with one of my favorites - Aviation themed designs.

    A month or so ago, I ran into some "coins" that pushed all the buttons . . . . Aviation, Coin Club medals, and beautiful designs. These medals are issued by the Boeing Employee Coin Club.

    Boeing must have a healthy population of numismatists to be able to support the level of medals they produce every year. Below are a few that I picked up - but this thread shouldn't be strictly about aviation themed designs.

    So post up your most beautiful designs . . . . planes, trains, and automobiles . . . .

    Here are a few of mine.

    I don't own this coin yet but hopefully someday soon I will!

    I'm more of a nerd for German planes but the P51 is my all time favorite for US fighters. The fact they put it on the quarter is really cool, I might buy a hockey puck of one someday.

    You have quite a nice set of airplane coins! Your post reminded me to look online for a coin I saw that was shaped like a plane. Here it is.

    It's not mine. This particular design doesn't fly with me. I like the ones you posted better. But in case you might like to add these to your fleet, here you go.
