80th Anniversary Operation Chastise Coin
During the night of the 16th-17th May 1943, 19 Lancasters of 617 Squadron departed RAF Scampton heading for the targets of the Möhne, Eder and Sorpe dams in Germany.
2023 marks the 80th Anniversary of this mission by the now legendary 617 Squadron “The Dambusters”. To celebrate this momentous raid we have created this beautiful challenge coin featuring glow in the dark areas with the reverse of the coin showing the Upkeep Mine used along with the routes taken by the aircraft on that night. Can you spot the unique way we have presented the German umlaut on the front?!
Limited edition 617 pieces. The coin measures 2.00″ inches and comes in presentation box with subdued printing.
