Just released and officially issued under license with the RAF, this £5 coin marks the 80th anniversary of our nation’s finest hour
Eighty years ago, on June 18, 1940, as the storm clouds of the Second World War gathered across the English Channel, the newly elected Prime Minister Winston Churchill delivered his famous address to the House of Commons: “What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin.…”. The Second World War had reached a critical juncture. Germany put into action a plan to gain superiority of the air above the English Channel and land troops on Britain’s southern shores. The freedom of Europe was at stake.
In the months that followed, the RAF valiantly defended the skies above Britain in what was to become a defining chapter in our nation’s history and the only battle ever to be fought entirely in the air — the Battle of Britain.
Minted to mark the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this new £5 coin has been officially issued under license with the RAF
Officially licensed with the RAF, the Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary £5 Coin honours not only the ‘Few’ but also the many who played their part in Britain’s victory. The striking design features one of the aircraft that has become synonymous with this epic battle — the Hawker Hurricane, shown streaking across the sky in formation ready to defend our shores against the onslaught of the German Luftwaffe.
