Historic ‘One-Day-Only’ Stamp & Gold Coin Cover
The Battle of Britain was a time unequalled in our history - our nation’s ‘finest hour’ - and the 15th September will forever be remembered as “Battle of Britain Day” - the day that the battle was won, a day that changed the course of the War, and with it, the course of history.

Flown ‘on the day’ in a Spitfire, in association with the RAF 
Marking 75 years since that historic day, The London Mint Office joined with the Royal Air Force to produce a truly historic issue. A wartime Spitfire took off from RAF Biggin Hill, on 15th September 2105, with a unique cargo on board –500 Philatelic Numismatic Covers. Combining a special ‘First Day Cover’ AND a solid Gold Quarter Sovereign this historic Philatelic Numismatic Cover is a fitting tribute to the brave heroes of the skies.

The Battle of Britain Gold Quarter-Sovereign
Pride of Place on the 75th Battle of Britain Gold Coin Cover is the official Battle of Britain Quarter Sovereign - struck in solid 22 carat Gold, the traditional purity of all gold sovereign coins. The coin’s design takes its cue from the ‘Wings for Victory’ created by an eminent British sculptor William McMillan during World War II. An exclusive 75th Anniversary Flight privy mark verifies that your gold coin flew over the skies of Britain on the Battle of Britain 75th Anniversary memorial flight.
