The RAF Squadron 1 Gold Plated Coin

The Royal Air Force's No. 1 Squadron is not only the oldest fighter squadron in the RAF, but also the oldest squadron in the world. 

The origins of the RAF's No. 1 Squadron date back to 1878, when No. 1 Balloon Squadron was formed. By the time the First World War broke out, they had become No. 1 Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps and since then the Squadron has been involved in every major British military operation.

As a tribute to the long and colourful history of the Squadron an official coin, authorised by the RAF, is now available to collectors. Official RAF coins are incredibly rare - making this coin remarkably collectable. 

This coin is fully plated in 24-carat gold and finished to a proof standard. It carries the official emblem of No. 1 Squadron RAF in full colour and comes in its own protective capsule with Certificate of Authenticity

With just 500 available, you will need to act quickly to secure your coin.

This is the only officially licensed RAF coin devoted to No. 1 Squadron RAF - don't miss out. 

I understand I will receive other RAF coins at the priority
collector's price of £39.99 (+p&p) in the RAF Coin
Collection at monthly intervals. I am under no obligation
and may return any RAF coins within 10 days. I may stop
collecting at any time.
