On 18th June 1940, Churchill gave a rousing speech to the British people announcing ‘…the Battle of France is over. I expect the Battle of Britain is about to begin.

Coining the name for the first military campaign fought entirely by air forces, Churchill had pre-empted the battle between the German Luftwaffe and the formidable Royal Air Force which would prove to be one of the most significant airborne battles in British history.

Exclusive British Military Editions

2020 marks the 80th anniversary of the devastating Battle of Britain which, though at a great expense, turned the tide of World War Two.

Significantly, the Battle of Britain kick-starts the exclusive British Military Editions commemorative series, looking back on some of the greatest exploits and shedding light on some of the lesser-known endeavours in British military history.

One-of-a-kind Strike

Expertly struck to a pristine mirrored finish and plated in 24 carat Gold, the Battle of Britain Edition is a truly classic commemorative, immortalising this historic victory and ‘The Few’ who achieved it.

The design celebrates the famous aircraft, the Hawker Hurricane and the Supermarine Spitfire, which dominated the skies over Britain during the summer of 1940, alongside the Union flag and the dates between which the vital battle fell – 10th July 1940 – 31st October 1940.

Flown in an actual Spitfire – NH341 ‘Elizabeth’

In a very special release, your Battle of Britain Edition is one of just 250 (the first 250 in the edition limit) to have been flown in an authentic WWII Spitfire (MK IXT NH341) which undertook many pivotal missions in her active service, including dive bombing missions, front line patrols and escorting Lancaster bombers on a mission to Le Havre to attack E boats.

What’s more, your medal has been flown by renowned Spitfire Pilot Flt Lt Antony Parkinson MBE (Parky). Antony flew with the RAF for an awe-inspiring 38 years! He was a Red Arrow and flew with Battle of Britain Memorial Flight before flying Spitfires regularly at Headcorne aerodrome in Kent.

Limited Edition - just 1,940 worldwide

Just 1,940 of these important commemoratives have been struck, making this one of the rarest ways to honour the Battle of Britain and this year’s anniversary. Don’t forget only the first 250 have been flown in an iconic Spitfire.

Your Battle of Britain Edition has been hand-mounted within a collector card and encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve its premium finish for years of historic military achievements to come. What’s more, your Battle of Britain Edition is housed in a premium display case, complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
