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.
5oz Fine Silver & 24 Carat Gold-Plating
In recognition of such an important military anniversary this brand new Silver 5oz Proof Coin has been issued. Struck in 999/1000 fine silver to a pristine Proof finish, it features an incredibly detailed engraving of three of the most iconic planes that form the BBMF – the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and Avro Lancaster 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 5oz Proof 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 your number within the strict edition limit.
Just 450 available worldwide
Larger coins are always extremely popular, with numerous sell-outs in previous years, and it’s not difficult to see why. Whether it be the low edition limits, the feel of a larger coin in your hands, or the intricate detail that can be added to a 65mm coin, the appeal of owning a coin significantly larger than circulated coinage is clear.
Importantly, this coin has a tiny worldwide edition limit of just 450, a very small number considering the importance of this year for the BBMF and the popularity of larger coins. What's more there's a huge interest that surrounds military and aviation collectables, which means this coin is expected to sell out quickly.
