Remember the heroes of aviation during the First World War, 100 years after the armistice.
Issued as part of a series commemorating the centenary of the First World War The Royal Mint issued a £2 coin featuring the spectacular depiction of a reconnaissance mission over the battle of Arras. 100 years after the end of the First World War and you now have the chance to own this impressive design struck to a Proof finish standard – the ultimate collector’s finish.
The pinnacle of the minter’s art, Proof coins are the highest quality commemorative coin produced by The Royal Mint.
Struck from base metal to a Proof finish, this WWI Aviation £2 Proof possesses a sharp finish with superb design detail, perfectly capturing a Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 plane in ultra-realistic detail.
The Proof finish is usually reserved for precious metal coins, however today you have the rare opportunity to own the First World War Aviation £2 base metal coin with the ultimate collector’s Proof finish.
Limited numbers available
However, we only have 520 available exclusively for Westminster collectors compared to the thousands minted for general circulation. This £2 Proof is unavailable at The Royal Mint and given the fact this coin is rarely available to own individually as a Proof base metal coin, demand is likely to far outstrip supply.
Add to your basket today to secure one for your collection before it’s too late.
