To commemorate the centenary, in 2018, of the establishment of the RAF, here's a tradition from the oldest of the three services adapted for the youngest. Called Challenge Coins, they originated as a form of entry pass.

In Nelson’s navy a sailor boarding ship would be challenged and asked to prove he was a member of the crew. Written documents were inadequate as most ratings were illiterate, so coins were issued bearing the ship’s name and coat of arms. Today naval Challenge Coins are highly collectable and we think these beautifully enamelled RAF versions will follow suit.

In the meantime they’re a splendid souvenir of a memorable event and a tangible way of showing support for one of our key front-line services.

a birthday present for my father - he thought they were very unique and of excellent quality - he used to be in the RAF and knew all the planes on the coins
