SOLD OUT: Remembrance Masterpiece Silver 5oz - expertly crafted from a Spitfire

** SOLD OUT **

Unfortunately the 2020 Masterpiece Poppy coin is now fully allocated.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Fought over British skies during the summer of 1940, it is one of the most important military anniversaries of recent years.

To mark the anniversary, today you have the chance to become one of just a handful of collectors to own the 2020 Masterpiece Poppy Coin released in support of The Royal British Legion.

The coin is called the 'Masterpiece Poppy Coin', but let us explain why it is worthy of this title.

Expertly crafted from a Spitfire with a remarkable story to tell

This Masterpiece coin has been struck in 5oz of fine 999/1000 silver and a single stylised Royal British Legion poppy, proudly sits on top of it. Multiple poppies have then been engraved into the surface of the coin, resulting in an exceptional 3 dimensional effect.

But the incredibly rare facet of this year’s coin is that it’s been crafted from a genuine piece of Spitfire.

You see, the silver coloured poppy that adorns your coin has been made from Spitfire PM631. Originally built in late 1945 it saw service with the Battle of Britain memorial flight for nearly FIFTY years between 1957 and 2006. It also had a starring role the WWII Movie – Battle of Britain, made in 1969.

Ultra-high relief

Once the Spitfire piece had been melted down and poured into a mould, it was cooled and cleaned to create the high-relief poppy. But even then, this is NOT a cast piece. The surface of the coin is struck in sterling silver and has been expertly plated in 24ct gold. The finish is a stunning matte appearance achieved using a technique called sandblasting. This means it has all of the detail that you'd expect from a commemorative coin but allows you to touch the coin and hold a genuine, iconic piece of history in the palm of your hand.

In short, the 2020 Remembrance Masterpiece Silver 5oz Poppy Coin is one of the finest and most stunning pieces of minting that we have ever seen.
