Celebrating 20 years since Thrust SSC broke the World Land Speed Record with a 2 way average of 763mph (Mach 1.02), this enamelled commemorative coin comes in a fitted black presentation case.
The coins are made from a brass based alloy which gives them the weighty/quality feel in the hand. Each coin weighs 50 grams and is 2 inches (50mm) in diameter and 3mm thick.
As a member of the BLOODHOUND SSC 1K Club, the official supporters’ Club for The BLOODHOUND Project, you can follow the engineering adventure step by step, with: access to a members-only area of The BLOODHOUND Project website; regular updates on the progress of the Car, from concept and build to Land Speed Record attempt; an invitation to meet the team and visit the car being built plus the chance to win a trip to see a run of the car abroad. In addition, Individual Gold 1K and Family (up to four people) Club members receive an exclusive invitation to see a UK run of the Car.
Sponsored by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and designed with the help of Kids In Museums, this big discovery sheet (864mm x 700mm) is designed for girls and boys from 5-13, to provoke investigation and exploration around the BLOODHOUND SSC Project. Our resident artist and film maker, Stefan Marjoram has produced wonderful illustrations of BLOODHOUND and its main rivals for the Land Speed Record to compare and there’s space to design your own record breaking car; with some engineering drawings if you like.
