Limited Edition Red Arrows Coin set.
Limited to only 65 sets worldwide, this is your chance to own a stunning collectible coin set that includes the signatures of five former Red Arrows Team Leaders! We will be making a donation from the proceeds of this product to the Jon Egging Trust.
The set comprises of two 2″ diameter coins, one based on the Gnat and the other on the Hawk.
The obverse of the gnat coin features the patch worn by Red Arrows aircrew from the early years of the team in the 1960s until 1979, the last year of the Gnat. We have incorporated areas of 3D detail in to the patch design to bring it to life. The reverse depicts one of the most famous images of the gnat at extremely low level in the countryside with smoke on, again in stunning 3D.
The second coin is based around the Hawk and the iconic ‘Diamond Nine’ formation. Once again using 3D relief, the famous Diamond Nine formation is depicted trailing traditional red, white and blue smoke. The phrase heard across airshows worldwide, “Smoke on…Go!” is shown around the bottom of the outer rim.
The Red Arrows official crest is depicted in stunning detail on the reverse.
These coins have been produced in partnership with Phoenix Challenge Coins using their Armor™ and Armor Shield™ processes.
