In commemoration of the Centenary of the First World War, The Royal Mint has issued a series of specially commissioned £2 coins. This is the fourth coin in a five-part series and it pays tribute to the aviators of the First World War and their sacrifices in the race for supremacy of the skies.
The design features the Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8, a commonly used reconnaissance aircraft during WW1, performing a reconnaissance flight over an area of the Battle of Arras in April 1917. Whilst the obverse shows the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty the Queen.
Struck by the Royal Mint to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated finish, this £2 coin has been protectively encapsulated and features a security hologram to certify its superior quality.
