Bravery in the Skies – the Iconic Spitfire.
The graceful but deadly Spitfire is simply unmistakable, an iconic symbol
of the battle for the skies over Britain in the Second World War. As part
of the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Royal Air Force, the famous
Spitfire appears on an official UK £2 coin.
This is the second coin in the series, it depicts three famous aircraft
flying over the clouds, designed by brothers Neil and Richard Talbot.
