About GUERNSEY - The RAF Centenary Badge Silver Proof 5oz Coin

This year marks the centenary of the RAF, the world’s first ever official Air Force.

There are numerous commemoratives celebrating this landmark event in military history, but none of them come close to this.

5oz Sterling Silver with 24 Carat Gold-Plating

Struck in a FULL five ounces of .999 fine silver to a stunning proof finish, favoured by collectors, this 5oz commemorative features an engraving of the iconic RAF badge selectively plated in 24 Carat-Gold.

The design itself is officially licensed and produced under the expert guidance of the RAF.

Larger coins are always extremely popular, and it’s not difficult to see why. Whether it be the low edition limits, the feel of a larger coin in your hands, or the intricate detail that can be added to a 65mm coin that can be difficult to include on smaller equivalents, the appeal of owning a coin significantly larger than circulated coinage is clear.

Officially approved by Her Majesty the Queen, the coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity confirming your number in the edition.

Just 250 available worldwide

What’s more, just 250 of these coins have been issued to a worldwide audience – a staggeringly low amount considering the significance of this historic milestone.

Unquestionably, this will prove to be a highly significant collectible in the years to come and 250 will not be enough to meet demand.

Your commemorative will come presented in a deluxe wooden presentation case alongside its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
