2017 marks the incredible 60th anniversary of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The Royal Air Force squadron plays a pivotal role in the preservation of priceless artefacts, remembrance of the fallen and also to promote the RAF and inspire future generations.
In recognition of such an important military anniversary this brand new Proof £5 coin has been issued.
This £5 coin has been struck to a pristine proof finish - the collector's favourite and the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. Proof coins are produced using a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish and enhanced definition.
It features three of the most iconic planes that form the BBMF – the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and Avro Lancaster, all of which are brought to life in stunning full colour.
Officially licensed and produced under the expert guidance of the Royal Air Force, this is the only official British Isles £5 coin to be released to mark the 60th anniversary.
Your coin comes neatly presented in a deluxe black leather presentation case along with a Certificate of Authenticity, guaranteeing your number within the small edition limit.
Just 4,950 available worldwide
It has a strict worldwide edition limit of just 4,950, a very small number considering the importance of this year for the BBMF and the huge interest that surrounds military and aviation collectables.
