RAF100 series: Lancaster, Spitfire, Hurricane
Officially Licensed Product

To recognise 100 years of the RAF we are offering a series of 10 coins featuring some of the most loved and iconic aircraft from the history of the Royal Air Force, up to the present day. Licensed by the Ministry of Defence, the collection includes aircraft types such as the Typhoon, Lancaster, Spitfire, Hurricane and of course a coin featuring the V-Force: Vulcan, Victor and Valiant. 

This coin celebrates arguably the most famous aircraft in the history of the Royal Air Force; the AVRO Lancaster, Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane. All three types can still be seen in the skies thanks to the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial flight.

  • Featured on one side is the Lancaster. During World War Two, Lancaster bomber crews conducted countless night raids across Europe and the aircraft was used in the renowned Dambusters Raid by 617 Squadron in 1943.
  • The reverse of the coin shows the Spitfire and Hurricane. The Spitfire and Hurricane were instrumental in winning the Battle of Britain in 1940.
The coin measures 50mm in diameter and comes in a fitted black presentation box with the specially designed RAF100 anniversary logo in silver on the lid inside and out. Supplied with an Officially Licensed Product card.
