Limited Edition Red Arrows Coin Set (signed by one)
Limited to only 65 sets worldwide, this is your chance to own a stunning collectable coin set, with 3D detail, that includes the signature of former Red Arrows Team Leader, John Rands.
In 1965 the Red Arrows team first displayed as an all-RAF team. They replaced a number of unofficial teams that had been sponsored by RAF commands. Initially, they were equipped with seven Folland Gnat trainers inherited from the RAF Yellowjacks display team.
The set comprises of two 2″ diameter coins, one based on the Gnat and the other on the Hawk.
- The obverse of the gnat coin features the patch worn by Red Arrows aircrew from the early years of the team in the 1960s until 1979, the last year of the Gnat. Incorporated are areas of 3D detail in the patch design to bring it to life.
- The reverse depicts one of the most famous images of the gnat at extremely low level in the countryside with smoke on, again in stunning 3D.
- The obverse of the Hawk coin features the iconic ‘Diamond Nine’ formation. Once again using 3D relief, the famous Diamond Nine formation is depicted trailing traditional red, white and blue smoke. The phrase heard across airshows worldwide, “Smoke on…Go!” is shown around the bottom of the outer rim.
- The Red Arrows official crest is depicted in stunning detail on the reverse.
These coins have been produced using processes to give the coins 3D detail.
Accompanying the coin set is the signature of former leader from 1994/1995/1996, John Rands.
