A poignant tribute to the aviators of the First World War

Just 50 covers include the commemorative £2 coin struck in 22 carat gold, finished to Proof standard. The coin’s reverse was created by Dan Flashman at Tangerine Design Agency. It features two airmen of the Royal Flying Corps performing a reconnaissance flight in a Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8. The clean lines are based on the aesthetics of both the blueprints and cartography used at the time, while the edge lettering bears the moving inscription ‘The Sky Rained Heroes’.
