RAF Centenary Badge Silver Coin
In 1918, The Royal Mint was striking the medals that paid tribute to the brave men and women of the Royal Air Force who played their part as the First World War drew to a close. 100 years later, as part of the RAF centenary celebrations the Mint produced five coins for a patriotic collection that will mark this important milestone.
This was the first coin in the collection to be released and its reverse design was created by The Royal Mint’s own Rhys Morgan. Rhys was inspired to use the badge of the RAF with the rousing motto ‘Per Ardua Ad Astra’ meaning ‘Through Adversity to the Stars’. This edition of the £2 coin has been struck in sterling silver and finished to Proof standard. As an official licensed product of the Royal Air Force the coin comes with a booklet created in collaboration with their experts and includes specially sourced imagery and information.
