This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. And we can’t talk about the Battle of Britain without mentioning the Spitfire’s starring role.
Ultimately regarded as a test of strength between the RAF and the German Luftwaffe, it is the Spitfire which enabled Britain to emerge victorious at the conclusion of the battle, making it forever synonymous with this moment in our history.
Now, the pivotal role the Spitfire played in the UK’s story is commemorated on a spectacular Spitfire Silver Proof Coin from La Monnaie de Paris...
Spitfire Silver Proof Coin
The obverse features an intricate design of two Supermarine Spitfires flying at full speed during an operation to protect the English coast around Dover. Meanwhile the reverse is a tribute to aviation history.
But what makes this historic commemorative piece such an artistic masterpiece is the quality with which it has been struck – from .900 Silver to a mirror-like proof finish.
Surprisingly low edition limit - JUST 3,000 worldwide
This issue is a must-have for collectors of military commemoratives. But with so few available, it’s an issue that few can ever own.
In fact, it has been issued with a strict worldwide edition limit of just 3,000 coins.
This tiny edition limit is surely not going to satisfy demand from military collectors in France, let alone in Britain where the Spitfire has played such a pivotal role in our history.
