Buy a 2018 Royal Air Force Centenary Sea King Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

The Royal Air Force was the first independent air force ever established, founded in the last months of the First World War. To mark the centenary year of the RAF, The Royal Mint released a series of coins celebrating the storied history of the world's oldest air force. This edition is the brilliant uncirculated Two Pound coin, struck twice during product to give a sharper finish compared to ordinary circulation coinage. The reverse of this collectable UK £2 showcases the Westland Sea King helicopter, used by the RAF from 1978 to 2015. The design shows the Sea King in the process of winching down a rescuer against a textured background - a motif designed by brothers Neil and Richard Talbot. Although primarily designed for performing anti-submarine warfare missions, it was an incredibly versatile aircraft and is perhaps best known for its role in search and rescue missions where it is decorated with a bright yellow livery. This 'tails' design is paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II, which is the fifth portrait of Her Majesty to appear on UK coinage. Specifications are a weight of 12.00 grams and a diameter of 28.40 millimetres, with an alloy composed of cupronickel and nickel-brass. A perfect gift for the RAF enthusiast in your life, with each coin supplied inside a limited edition slipcase with details about the Sea King.
