Own the UK Lightening II £2 Coin in a stunning tribute to the Royal Air Force

In celebration of the centenary anniversary of the Royal Air Force, The Royal Mint has released a special series of new £2 coins.

The final coin to be released as part of this celebratory collection is the revolutionary Lightening II.

The Lightening II – Aviation of the future

To commemorate 100 years of the world’s first independent air force, the series pays tribute to aviation of the past, the present and the future. The Lightening II is the perfect nod to the future of the RAF with its pioneering multipurpose abilities, conducting the roles of multiple aircraft simultaneously.

This is the first time that The Lightening II has appeared on official UK coinage and its reverse has been beautifully designed to represent the sharp and speedy Lightening II by brothers Richard and Neil Talbot and struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish. The obverse features the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

Officially Licensed

The coin will come delivered to you in the official Royal Mint presentation packaging, which has been created in collaboration with the Royal Air Force and features a quote from one of the test pilots lucky enough to fly the iconic jet plane. This means your coin will be kept safe and protected for generations to come.  

We currently have a very limited stock available and The Lightening II is a must have for any collector. This is also a moving gift idea for military and aviation enthusiasts so if you want to secure one for yourself or a loved one, you will need to be quick.
