Royal Mint Product Description:

Beautiful, Swift, Deadly - the Iconic Spitfire

In 1918, The Royal Mint struck the medals that honoured the heroic men and women of the RAF. In 2015 we issued a 50p coin to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle Britain. Now in 2018, we are proud to be involved in the RAF100 celebrations, striking a collection of five coins to mark the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

This is the second coin in the series and it features the Spitfire - the first time the aircraft has appeared on a United Kingdom coin. Entering service in 1938, the Spitfire served in every major theatre of the Second World War. It played a key part in Britain's -finest hour' and remains close to the hearts of those who have flown one of the iconic aircraft.

This edition of the £2 coin has been struck in sterling silver. The coin's reverse was created by brothers Richard and Neil Talbot and every detail of their design has been finished to Proof standard. The collection has been created in partnership with the RAF and the accompanying booklet includes specially sourced imagery and information on the famous plane.
