It was 35 years ago that Britain fought its “last traditional war”, travelling 8000 miles to reinforce their territory of the Falkland Islands. Beginning on April 2nd 1982 and culminating on June 14th of the same year, the Falklands Conflict resonated deeply with the British public, and is to this day felt very passionately about. With 255 British dead, and 777 non-fatal casualties, the 35th anniversary commemorations have a particular poignancy.

This exclusive set, comprising the circulating coins from the Falklands, honours the British military personnel and civilians for their service in the ten weeks of bitter fighting on the Falkland Islands.

The uncirculated set, issued between 1998 and 2004, features denominations from 1 penny up to the two pound coin. The obverse depicts a variety of the Queen’s official portraits, while the reverse features the famous animals of the Falkland Islands.
