The Royal Mint has issued this stunning double-thickness ‘Piedfort’ Silver £2 to commemorate the role aviation played during the First World War and pay tribute to the aviators and their sacrifices in the race for supremacy of the skies.
Piedforts are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship and are struck on superior double-thickness blanks - in .925 silver and finished to the very highest proof finish. There’s a dramatically noticeable weight difference when you hold them too.
Piedfort coins have considerably smaller edition limits than standard Silver Proof coins, so it's no wonder they have some of the strongest sell-out records of any British coins.
Extremely limited - SOLD OUT at the Mint
And this coin is no exception. Importantly, this special Piedfort issue has an edition limit of just 2,000, making it one of the most limited Piedfort issues around.
Unsurprisingly, this tiny number of coins was not enough to meet collector demand. Due to being an extremely limited edition, collectors were quick to snap it up and it's COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at The Royal Mint.
Exceptional, high-quality minting
Each coin has been struck from .925 Silver with 24 Carat Gold-plating to a pristine Proof finish. Proof coins are struck several times using specially polished dies to create a flawless finish with a perfect mirrored background and frosted design. The ultimate in coin quality.
Designed by tangerine, the reverse of this striking coin shows a pilot and his observer performing a reconnaissance flight in a Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 over an area of the Battle of Arras, in April 1917. Whilst the obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty the Queen.
Your coin will arrive ready to display in its official Royal Mint presentation case with a certificate of authenticity.
