“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” were the words spoken by Winston Churchill during his wartime speech on 20 August 1940.
80 years later, The Battle of Britain remains one of the most defining chapters of the Second World War and to mark this milestone anniversary, we have curated an exclusive World War II collectables range.
Let me tell you a little bit more…
Of all our collectables ranges, this is definitely the one I am most proud of because of its historic importance. Here is my run-down of the range and exactly what makes each piece so special and so highly sought-after…
Just Released NEW Battle of Britain £2 coins…
First up has to be my favourite in the range it’s the Battle of Britain £2 coins that have been released today and have been very popular with collectors!
Three official British Isles £2 coins have been issued, paying tribute to the brave servicemen and women who defended the skies above Great Britain during the summer of 1940. The coins have been issued by Jersey, with designs inspired by Winston Churchill’s iconic speech ‘The Few’, specifically reflecting the well-regarded line:
“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
With moving designs of pilots and Spitfires, the coins capture the magnitude of the battle, finished perfectly with the inscriptions ‘So Much’, ‘So Many’, ‘So Few’.
Each coin is struck to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated quality, the collector specification of choice.
Our own Collectors Edition sold out in a matter of minutes today. However I have manage to source a small number of The Battle of Britain £2 Sets for collectors who missed out and still want the chance to own the coins.
