About This Products

In July 1940, Europe was embroiled in the grips of fear as the Axis juggernaut continued their onslaught, the world was truly in the grips of the Second World War. As Adolf Hitler set his sights on dominating Britain, only 2,332 Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots stood in his way of total domination. The battle of Britain finally ended on 31 October 1940, which was the first significant victory for the Allied forces against German forces. Winston Churchill said "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few", it was considered Britain’s finest hour.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of this turning point in the Second World War, the Royal Mint has released the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain 2015 UK 50p Gold Proof Coin. Designed by sculptor Gary Breeze, the coin features airmen scrambling to their planes, not heeding the danger looming above, echoing the spirit of the summer of 1940.
