Item Description


Battle of Britain 50th Anniversary 50p Fifty Pence - Weight: 15.50 Grams / Diameter: 27.30mm

Metal: Solid 22 Carat Gold

Quality: Gold Proof

Issue Limit: 1,500 Worldwide

Presented: Original Mint Box with it's Certificate of Authenticity

In 2000, Guernsey commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain with this 22 Carat Gold Proof 50p Fifty Pence Coin.
The scene depicted is a spitfire fighter and one of the few RAF pilots who fought in the skies of southern England during 1940.
The RAF had two modern fighter aircraft with which to defend Britain‘s skies from the invading German‘s Luftwaffe. Most numerous was the Hawker Hurricane which was a monoplane development of the famous bi-plane designs of the 1920s and 30s. It had eight machine guns and could make tighter turns than the Messerschmitt BF 190; an important advantage in a dog fight. It was however slower than the German fighter and often went after the invading bombers.
The Supermarine Spitfire was a more modern design which could match the BF 109 in speed. It also had eight guns and was a delight to fly, becoming a favourite with all who flew this beautiful aircraft. There is no doubt that the two aircraft complemented one another during that fateful Summer of 1940 when Britain was saved from German invasion.
The obverse of the coin is ian Rank Broadleys elegant portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
