A subscription of historical interest, order yours today!

The first coin in your subscription pays tribute to Canada's role in the Battle of Britain with its depiction of a dogfight in the skies above Dover. At the helm of a Hawker Hurricane, a Canadian fighter pilot ascends higher after firing upon a Dornier Do 17Z – the enemy plane has seemingly dropped in altitude as a trail of dark smoke billows up from one of its engines. Well below these fighter planes, the background recreates England's beautiful southeastern coast, where the waters of the English Channel meet the famous White Cliffs of Dover.

This subscription depicts scenes from key battles in which Canadians bravely participated during the Second World War. Order yours today!

Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver 10-Coin Subscription - Second World War Battlefront (2015):

There is just to much time between each coin and the price is a little too high. I mean take the first coin and that is 80.00 some dollars and x10 make 800,00 some dollars.(Sorry, I don't remember the exact price but don't get me wrong I love Canda and planes and World War II) Now, I love the images on the coin!

          This is a very well designed coin. I received mine when they first came out. I thought the point of a subscription was to receive a coin every month. When do the other coins start rolling out? Is this a yearly subsciption?

              This RCM has done an outstanding job in the design and its execution of this coin.

              It accurately depicts a Hurricane fighter and Dornier bomber over the Dover Cliffs. I confirmed the accuracy of and type of planes in the image with the RAF Museum in North London, UK. They verified that these, were, in fact, typical of those involved in 1940.

              This is a fitting tribute to the Canadians who were among "The Few", as many flew the Hurricane and Spitfires that held the Luftwaffe at bay. "Canada's contribution to the Battle of Britain was enormous", according to the RAF Museum. The inclusion of George VI's image complements its historical accuracy.

              An earlier coin issued by the Royal Mint in 2010 for the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain depicted an RAF Spitfire and is a nice companion to this coin. That said, I much prefer to RCM's coin for its scene and strike.

              The execution of this design is very well done, given the coin's relatively small surface area. The strike, as always, is perfect, and this coin will likely grade PF-70 by PCGS or NGC.

              It's also worth noting that the UK's Royal Mint has received much criticism for the historical inaccuracies of its 50p, circulating coin. Google Royal Mint Battle of Britain coin for details.

              The remaining coins in the series also have themes that anyone interested in WWII will appreciate, whether Canadian or American. The RCM constantly delights and excites me with its coins, and this one is no exception.

                This coin has gotten nothing but "Ooohs and Ahhhs" from everyone that I have shown it to. As someone who collects militaria and was honoured to be a participant in a lot of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations while in the Navy, I was deeply impressed by this coin. I have purchased military themed coins from the Australian Mint and the Royal Mint, including the Royal Mints latest Battle of Britain coin and they do not come close to this coin. The last Battle of Britain coin that I saw that came close to this one was the 2010 Battle of Britain coin issued by Alderney, which was also offered by the Canadian Mint.
                I cannot wait for the rest of the series to be delivered.

                    Hi John,

                    Good question! The serial # (certificate #s) for all the coin in any subscription will most likely not match. Since subscriptions can be cancelled at anytime, many customers keep the coin(s) they've already purchased, so it's impossible to ensure every customer receives the same certificate # for all their coins in a subscription.
