The Battle of Britain was an intense air battle fought mainly throughout the summer of 1940 between Germany and Britain. The name for the conflict was derived from a Winston Churchill speech in which he said “The Battle of France is over. I expect the Battle of Britain is about to begin”. Ultimately it was a decisive victory for the RAF and Britain, and crucially it was the first time Germany had faced defeat in World War Two. The reverse design of this commemorative 50p depicts three airmen scrambling towards their planes.

The coin has undergone a few steps to achieve the end result, we had to chemically clean and pepeare the metal for plating. Then once the coin has been chemically cleaned, the coin is rinsed then ready to move to the plating stage , We then submerge the coin in 24ct real gold - at this point layers of real gold is chemically adhered to the surface metal which still amazes us till this day. The process is not finalised yet, the coin is then moved to the polishing stage.
The Coin is placed in its own coin case with its corresponding name elegantly displayed. The coin case is then sealed tight but if you want to open and handle the coin then the case can also be opened too.
