Aviation and History : the Spitfire

Launched in 2017, this year’s Aviation and History collection celebrates the Supermarine Spitfire. A British single-seater fighter widely used by the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. In particular, he contributed to the Allied victory in the Battle of Britain, from July 1940 to May 1941, against the Luftwaffe, the German air force.
Pilot and author of comic books specializing in aviation, Romain Hugault once again collaborated with the master engraver of Monnaie de Paris, Joaquin Jimenez, for the development of this new series of gold and silver coins.
