Fought over British skies in the summer of 1940, the heavily outnumbered RAF fought off the German Luftwaffe, in what is now known as the Battle of Britain, and ultimately saved Britain from the imminent German invasion.
Now 80 years on, a stunning Silver Proof £5 coin has been released to commemorate the bravery and heroism of the RAF who clutched victory in that pivotal air battle.
The design features the legendary Spitfire with a Union Jack trailing from behind. Also, a notable inclusion to the edge of the design is an excerpt from Winston Churchill’s famous speech 'So Much, So Many, So Few’, his moving tribute to the brave pilots of the RAF.

The new Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary Silver Proof £5 Coin has been struck from solid sterling silver to a pristine proof finish. Proof coins are struck using a specially prepared die that strikes it several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish with enhanced definition.
