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.
Sterling Silver and 24 Carat Gold-Plating
In recognition of such an important military anniversary this brand new £5 coin has been issued. Struck in 925/1000 sterling silver, it features three of the most iconic planes that form the BBMF– the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and Avro Lancaster engraved in incredible detail and highlighted in glorious 24 carat gold plating.
Officially licensed and produced under the expert guidance of the Royal Air Force, this is the only official British Isles Silver £5 coin to be released to mark the 60th anniversary.
Your coin comes neatly presented in a deluxe wooden Presentation Case along with a Certificate of Authenticity, guaranteeing its number within the strict edition limit.
Just 2,017 available worldwide
It has a strict worldwide edition limit of just 2,017, a very small number considering the importance of this year for the BBMF and the huge interest that surrounds military and aviation collectables.
