2018 marked the centenary of the Royal Air Force, arguably the most important military anniversary to be celebrated in British history. In fact, there were numerous official events and ceremonies up and down the country to mark the occasion – including a service at Westminster Abbey with an RAF parade and flypast!
Now, to commemorate this historic landmark, an Official RAF Centenary Five Pound Coin was issued.
This coin has been officially approved by the MOD and the one-year-only reverse design features the official RAF logo above three aircraft specially selected to demonstrate the developments of the RAF over the last 100 years. The aircraft shown in full colour are the Sopwith Camel, Supermarine Spitfire and Lockheed Lightning II.
This coin really is the ideal way to pay tribute to our Air Force and the brave men and women, past and present, who have served over the last 100 years to help defend our skies.
