Royal Mint Product Description:

Bravery in the Skies Honoured in Gold

When you think of iconic aircraft, the Spitfire will most likely spring to mind. A swift but deadly flying machine, it is one of the most graceful aircraft ever created. So pivotal in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire will evoke memories for retired pilots and inspire the next generation.

The second coin in the collection celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force and features this marvel of aeronautical engineering. Unusually, the reverse design was created by two artists, brothers Richard and Neil Talbot. Both are contemporary artists who have captured the Spitfire where it is most at home, in the sky, accompanied by two comrades. This edition of the £2 coin has been struck in 22 carat gold and every detail of the design finished to Proof standard. The accompanying booklet has been produced in collaboration with the RAF and includes insights from those who have flown the iconic aircraft.
