• Silver Proof £2 release celebrating 100 years of the RAF
• Limited to just 7,500 coins
• Featuring the Royal Air Force’s newest aircraft – the Lightning II
• Struck in Sterling Silver to a stunning Proof finish
Why I recommend the UK 2018 RAF Lightning II Silver Proof £2 coin…
This year marks the Centenary of the RAF. To honour the occasion The Royal Mint has announced a series of brand new £2 coins, with the RAF’s greatest aircraft being immortalised – in this case, their newest plane, the Lightning II.
The coins will enter general circulation later this year, but The Royal Mint has also announced the release of extra-special Silver Proof versions of the coin for serious collectors.
And it has been given a strict edition limit of just 7,500 coins. That seems low to me for such an important anniversary and such a stunning design.
