RAF Centenary Antique Commemorative

2018 marks a significant year for the Royal Air Force, commemorating 100 years of service and honouring countless stories of courage and heroism from those men and women who bravely served us and our country.

To mark the Centenary this special edition 2018 commemorative has been issued.  And it really is like no other.

A lasting tribute for future generations

In fact this incredible commemorative had to be specially cast for the anniversary as its intricate design and ultra-high relief is too difficult to strike using traditional methods.

Officially approved by the MOD

Officially approved by the Ministry of Defence, its impressive 70mm diameter and antique silver finish truly reveals the mastery of three of the Royal Air Force’s most iconic aircrafts across the WWI, WWII and modern-day eras.

What’s more, your commemorative meticulously depicts the Sopwith Camel, Supermarine Spitfire and Eurofighter Typhoon in all their glory. 

And, as befits such an important commemorative, the official RAF badge proudly adorns the obverse, featuring the iconic motto “Per Ardua ad Astra” – translated as “Through Adversity to the Stars”.

But what is even more incredible is that you can own this extraordinary and historic piece for just £50 (+p&p).

Strict worldwide edition limit

Your commemorative, which has been officially licensed by the Ministry of Defence, will come displayed in a Deluxe Presentation Case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its place within the incredibly strict worldwide edition limit of just 995. A tiny number when you consider the huge interest in military and aviation collectables – especially during such a special year for the Royal Air Force.

Don’t miss out on marking such an historic anniversary with this official RAF Centenary Antique Commemorative – order yours today!
