This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Fought over the skies of Britain during the summer of 1940, it was one of the most significant events of the Second World War.
In commemoration of the battle, a special Collectors Frame has been produced exclusively by the Westminster Collection. Featuring an ORIGNAL World War Two dated sixpence, this frame pays tribute to the pilots who fought during the Battle.
Lucky Silver Sixpence
Sixpences have always been deemed as lucky coins, stemming from the tradition of giving a bride one on her wedding day to bring fortune during her marriage. But during WWII, pilots sought to harness the luck of the sixpence by sewing one behind their brevets, or wings, as they took flight.
Your frame features an original .500 silver World War Two dated sixpence – just think, it may even have flown above Britain 80 years ago! Having been out of circulation for over half a century, these sixpences are not easy to source.
Just £12.99 – Limited Number available
These coins are difficult to source in large numbers, so we only have a limited number of these frames available. Given the importance of the anniversary this year we are expecting demand to be high. So order yours today to avoid disappointment.
