Product Information

 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Fighter Plane Designs

The reverse of each coin, which features a coloured design element and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, portrays:

Hawker Hurricane

The RAF’s first monoplane fighter was also its first fighter capable of exceeding 300mph in level flight. Often perceived as a back up to the Supermarine Spitfire, the Hurricane was, in fact, Fighter Command’s most telling weapon during the Battle of Britain.

North American P-51 Mustang

Escorting US bombers deep inside Germany and making a similarly notable contribution in the Pacific theatre, the Mustang's pivotal role during the latter half of the War persuaded many that it was one of the greatest US fighters ever built.

Mitsubishi A6M Zero-Sen

An impressively armed and highly manoeuvrable shipboard fighter, the Zero stunned the US with its appearance over Pearl Harbour in 1941.  In the latter stages of the War, the legendary fighter became the Japanese Navy’s prime kamikaze attack bomber.

Messerschmitt Bf109

Fast, manoeuvrable and versatile, the Bf109 destroyed more enemy aircraft during WWII than any other German fighter.  One of the secrets of its success was a fuel injection system that maintained a constant fuel supply during extreme manoeuvres.

Yakovlev Yak-3

The Yak-3 was the exceptional Soviet fighter of its era.  Particularly effective in dogfights at altitudes below 5,000 metres, the agile aircraft dominated the skies above the Eastern Front during the final phase of WWII.

Issued as Legal Tender

Each 2008-dated coin, which bears Raphael Maklouf's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

Presentation Packaging

The set is housed in a screen printed presentation case and protective box shipper.

Extremely Limited Release

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,500 of these Five-Coin Sets.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Each set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity featuring a description of each fighter plane.
