JUST 500: The Battle of Britain Flown Sixpence DateStamp™

To mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain this year, a very special, limited edition commemorative has been released. You can be one of JUST 500 collectors to own the first ever flown sixpence DateStamp™.

A rare opportunity: Flown in an original Spitfire

We were given the rare opportunity to make this DateStamp™ stand out from our usual issues. Each sixpence has been flown in an original Spitfire NH341 by Spitfire pilot Flt Lt Anthony Parkinson in honour of the anniversary.

This gives you an even more limited opportunity to own this DateStamp™, as it is the FIRST TIME a flown coin has been included in a DateStamp™.

One day only Postmark: JUST 500 available

Each coin has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the anniversary date of the start of the battle: 10th July 2020 – preserving your DateStamp™ in a moment of time. And remember, the special one-day-only postmark means that the strict edition limit of 500 is guaranteed - no more can ever be produced. That means that once we sell out we will not be able to offer this again. 

Sell out imminent

Don’t forget our DateStamp™ issues have some of the fastest and most consistent sell out records with collectors. As such an important anniversary, and given that this is an incredibly unique opportunity, we are not expecting our stock to be available for long. 

You can secure yours today for JUST £19.99 (+p&p). But you’ll need to act quickly to secure yours before they are fully allocated.
