This year marks the centenary of the Royal Air Force – perhaps the most important military anniversary in British history. To mark this historic occasion, an Official RAF Centenary £5 Proof coin has been issued – the perfect way to pay tribute to the Air Force and the brave men and women who have served to help defend our skies.

Now you have the chance to own one of these new RAF Centenary £5 coins flown in an original WWII Spitfire!

Flown on Spitfire TD314

On 12th May, we took an extremely limited number of the Proof £5 coins to be flown in Spitfire TD314 at Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent by Flight Lieutenant Anthony Parkinson.

Officially approved by the MOD

Your coin has been officially approved by the MOD and struck to the highest Proof standard. A Proof finish means your coin has been struck using specially polished dies to create a flawless finish. The coin’s design features the Spitfire itself, the Sopwith Camel and the Lockheed Lightning II highlighted in 24ct gold ink, beautifully representing the technological advancement of the RAF over the last 100 years.

Tiny edition limit – hand-signed by the Pilot!

Your coin has a worldwide edition limit of just 4,950 coins and just 250 of them have been flown in the original Spitfire TD314 – these definitely won’t be around for long! 

What’s more, each flown coin comes in a protective tamper-proof capsule with the pilot’s hand-signature, keeping both your coin and the signature in pristine condition forever. It comes presented in a deluxe presentation case with its own numbered certificate of authenticity allowing you to keep it safe or display it proudly in your home or office.
