AN ETERNAL TRIBUTE TO THE COURAGE OF THE AIRCREWS OF THE RAF

The Battle of Britain was a time unequalled in our history – ‘our finest hour’, on which our survival as a nation and the outcome of the Second World War depended. Officially issued under license with the RAF, the Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary £5 Coin is an enduring tribute to all who served during that fateful summer of 1940. There are few alive today who have experience of this conflict, making it more important than ever that we remember the sacrifice of “the Few” with a lasting commemoration.

ICONIC PORTRAYAL OF THE HAWKER HURRICANE

For many people, the Battle of Britain is associated with the Supermarine Spitfire. However, the Hurricane was responsible for the majority of German aircraft shot down in the Battle of Britain. The Hawker Hurricane confronted wave after wave of the Luftwaffe as the Germans attempted to dominate Britain’s airspace.
