Through the ages The Royal Mint has been happy to honour the men and women of the Army, and as the Royal Air Force reaches its centenary, we continue this custom by striking an amazing series of coins for the event. Each ₤2 coin in the series commemorates the RAF's pioneering spirit and development in air travel.

This is the last coin in the series and it includes the Lightning II-- appearing on a United Kingdom coin for the very first time. Going into service in 2018, the multirole Lightning II will accompany the jet aircraft, Typhoon to change the RAF's combating ability. This airplane represents the future of the RAF making it the right choice for the final coin in this collection.

For the reverse image of the coin, brothers Richard and Neil Talbot highlight the amazing design of the jet by putting it across a declining sky. A Proof surface improves each element of the design, such as the strong shape of the engraving and the jet marking the date of the event. This edition of the ₤2 coin has been struck in sterling silver and exists with an accompanying brochure, consisting of specifically sourced images and details on the amazing airplane.
