The coin's reverse design was uncommonly developed by 2 artists, brothers Richard and Neil Talbot, who teamed up to catch the Sea King in action on a rescue objective. With a diameter of more than 28mm and weighing 24 grammes, this sterling silver piedfort coin, completed to Proof standard, is a considerable homage to the important services the RAF has provided our country. Only 3,000 piedfort coins are offered in this Limited Edition Presentation and each coin is accompanied by a pamphlet developed in collaboration with the RAF, consisting of a quote from previous Sea King pilot, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge.

The Royal Mint has a heritage of celebrating the crucial moments in British military history, and as the Royal Air Force reaches its centenary, we're happy to mark this unique year with an amazing series of coins. Each of the five ₤2 coins in the series commemorates the nerve and spirit of both the Royal Air Force and the remarkable individuals who have spearheaded air travel since 1918. The penultimate aircraft to be included is the recognisable Sea King, an effective helicopter that went into service in 1978.
