The Royal Mint has a history of honouring the Armed Forces, the piedfort coin itself has long honoured the most influential of occasions and anniversaries for the country. This piedfort edition of the ₤2 coin is a significant homage to modern-day air travel, with a size of more than 28mm and weighing 24 grammas of sterling silver.

Continuing its track record for pioneering air travel, the Royal Air Force's 5th generation multirole battle aircraft is set to change RAF fighting ability. The coin depicts the innovative Lightning II and finishes our five-coin RAF centenary series, bringing focus to present day and the motivating future of air travel.

The coin's reverse was uncommonly produced by 2 artists, brothers Richard and Neil Talbot, who have worked together to catch the Lightning II speeding through the sky on this coin. Every detail of the coin has been finished to Proof quality and the accompanying pamphlet where you can read insights on the Lightning II, including a quote from a test pilot for the aircraft.
