A unique Spitfire aircraft 80th anniversary gold-layered five crowns coin, exclusive to The Bradford Exchange – The Spitfire is without a doubt one of aviation's best-known and loved aircraft. Its famous defence of the skies above Britain during World War II lifted the spirits of those on the home front immeasurably. The Spitfire was fast, manoeuvrable and deadly. The technological foresight of the Spitfire aircraft's designer RJ Mitchell enabled Britain and her Allies to engage the enemy in a way never before seen in aerial combat. This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Spitfire's entry into service and it is my pleasure to announce the minting of a new five crown coin celebrating Mitchell and his legendary creation, the Supermarine Spitfire aircraft.

Our exclusive 80th Anniversary Spitfire Aircraft Five Crowns Coin brings together the proud history of the Spitfire in one dynamic design. A colour portrait of RJ Mitchell looks towards his craft, airborne to meet the enemy. Creator and creation on course to change history. The words: 'RJ Mitchell 1895-1937 Father of the Spitfire' are engraved arounds the edge acknowledging Mitchell's role, whilst: 'Envy of the Enemy' places the Spitfire at the very pinnacle of aviation legends.

Just below the wingtip, a small fragment of genuine Spitfire fuselage has been incorporated into the design. It is a rare and marvellous inclusion which in a very real sense brings the Spitfire and its illustrious history into your home. As you gaze at the artefact, remember the pilots who soared skyward in this technological marvel and pause to reflect that their courage is now part of your coin. What a truly moving tribute. Substantial is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold, creating a coin that is simply without parallel. The technical complexities of striking at such a large diameter ensures that the worldwide mintage has been set remarkably low, at just 1,938. High demand is expected so don't delay. Order now!
