A fitting tribute to the world’s first official Air Force – The RAF Centenary Antique Commemorative
2018 is a special year for the Royal Air Force as it marks 100 years since its formation, making it the world’s oldest air force. This special edition commemorative has been issued to honour countless stories of courage and heroism from the men and women who bravely served in the skies.
A lasting tribute for all generations
This incredible commemorative has been specially cast for the anniversary as its intricate design and ultra-high relief is too difficult to strike using traditional methods. It meticulously depicts the Sopwith Camel, Supermarine Spitfire and Eurofighter Typhoon in all their glory.
At 70mm in diameter and cast to a stunning antique silver finish, this commemorative truly reveals the mastery of three of the Royal Air Force’s most iconic aircrafts across the WWI, WWII and modern-day eras. Its antique finish means you can take it out of its case and really feel the detail and stunning design without marking it.
This is the perfect gift for anyone who has served in the Royal Air Force and to pass on to future generations as a tribute to last forever.
