Everything you need to know about our incredible RAF Centenary Range...

A big warm welcome to RAF Centenary Week! I’m so glad we were finally able to show you our incredible new collector items and exclusive interview with Red Arrows Pilot, ‘Parky’, in our RAF Centenary Collectables Show.  I hope you enjoyed it as much I as did putting it together for you all! 

Meeting ‘Parky’ and getting our items flown in a Spitfire has to be up there with one of the best days of my life.  Hearing his stories about flying with the Red Arrows and being part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was fascinating, his passion is infectious. But then also being up close and personal with the iconic Spitfire, well, that is something most can only dream of!  If you missed it, you can find out more about my special day here>>

I’ve been working hard over the last few months curating our range of RAF Centenary pieces for the show and am so pleased where we’ve got to.  Of all the themed ranges we have at Collectology, this one is very special – there’s so many stories to tell about each of the items.  I thought you might like to know a bit more about them all so without further ado – here’s your complete guide to our RAF Centenary Range and why they are must-have collector pieces (just remember, each one is strictly limited so time is of the essence!)

The RAF Signed Capsule Edition – flown in an original WWII Spitfire!

The RAF Flown £5 Coin Capsule Edition

Incredible coin design highlighted in 24-carat gold, tick. Encapsulated in our popular Capsule Edition presentation, tick. Officially approved by the Ministry of Defence, tick. Flown on an original WWI Spitfire, tick. Hand-signed by the Pilot, tick. I could go on but I guess you get the picture – this is a very special collector item!

It comes presented in a Deluxe Presentation Case with its own Numbered Certificate of Authenticity allowing you to keep it safe for generations to come.  Based on the fact our last 2 Signed Capsule Editions have SOLD OUT and the “small” added bonus of this having been flown on an original WWII Spitfire – I don’t think they will be around for long.  Especially as we have just 250 available worldwide.  If you’re going to snap up any of the RAF range immediately, I would advise it be this one!

This can be yours today for just £30 (+p&p) – order yours today while you still can>>

Large size Commemorative paying tribute the world’s first Air Force in Ultra-High Relief – just 10 available!

The RAF Centenary Antique Commemorative

Issued to celebrate the Centenary of the Royal Airforce, this is a very special piece.  It’s a lasting tribute for all generations, honouring countless stories of courage and heroism from the men and women who bravely served our skies.

What makes this piece quite unique, is that it has been specially cast with an intricate design and ultra-high relief that is too difficult to strike using traditional methods that you see on most coins.  The large 70mm diameter allows for the meticulous design of the Sopwith Camel, Supermarine Spitfire and Eurofighter Typhoon to be shown in full glory.  The detail is amazing!

It has been cast to a stunning antique silver finish, something rarely seen, and is officially approved by the Ministry of Defence.  Complete with a Deluxe Presentation Case and Certificate of Authenticity – this is the perfect gift for any RAF or aviation enthusiasts out there.  Though if you’d like to buy one you’ll need to be quick as we have just 10 available.

Own a genuine piece of Spitfire in a Limited Edition Framed Presentation

The Spitfire Frame Presentation

It’s not every day that you get the chance to own a genuine piece of British history. But here today, as we celebrate the Centenary Anniversary of the Royal Air Force, you can do just that.  How incredible! 

This exclusive Framed Presentation features an original piece of a Spitfire taken from an operational aircraft that flew during World War II.   I mean, as far as iconic aircraft go, it doesn’t get much better than the Spitfire! Whether battling Messerschmitts over the English Channel or flying dangerous missions deep into Germany, the Spitfire was quick, accurate, deadly and beloved by the heroic pilots who flew them. 

The Frame features an impressive image of the Spitfire, along with historical and technical specifications about the actual Spitfire the piece came from! Now that is something special. It will come delivered professionally mounted and framed, ready for you to hang with pride in your home or office. 

As is the case with all our RAF range, numbers are unfortunately limited.  However due to the nature of this product featuring a genuine piece of Spitfire, this is especially true with just 7 available for collector and fans.  These are going to fly out (excuse the pun!) so order yours today before they’ve all gone>>

The RAF’s 100 year history documented in a fascinating Newspaper Book!

The RAF Newspaper Book

What better way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the RAF than with a luxurious book filled with over 160 pages of rarely seen coverage of the RAF’s most memorable moments? I’ve never seen anything quite like it and really struggled to put it down.  It’s so bursting with history that no matter how many times you read it, you’re bound to discover something new. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! 

This premium, A3-sized book opens an incredible window into the 100-year history of the Royal Air Force.

This is the perfect gift for any aviation or British history enthusiast, its wide-appeal makes a fantastic keepsake that will be looked at time and time again.  The cover is embossed in gold ink giving an extra special feel and it comes presented in a FREE luxury presentation case. The perfect coffee table piece that is sure to stand out in any home or office. Find out more here>>

Luxury Spitfire Cufflinks made from a real WWII Spitfire aircraft! 

The Supermarine Spitfire Cufflinks

Did you ever think you’d get the chance to wear a genuine piece of Spitfire? No, me neither – which is why when I came across these cufflinks I knew immediately that they had to be part of the range. What an amazing story you can tell your friends when they compliment you on how great they look!

Produced by experts at ‘TMB’ Art Metal, each cufflink is carefully crafted into the iconic Spitfire shape from Duralumin from an original Spitfire P7350, the oldest airworthy Spitfire in the world. In fact, the P7350 actually flew in the Battle of Britain in 1940! That means you have the opportunity to own a piece of Spitfire that was part of the largest aerial bombing campaign in British military history. 

A few lines of detail really doesn’t do these Cufflinks any justice so I'll be putting together a full blog post for them in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the video below to take a closer look: 

We have just 20 pairs available of this very special item, the centrepiece to our RAF Centenary Range, so if you’d like to own a piece of 1940 RAF history you’ll need to act quickly. Find out more here>>
