Queen Elizabeth Class Carrier Challenge Coin Collection
93626 Queen Elizabeth Coins, £24.99
Historically, challenge coins were carried by members of an organisation (often a military unit) to prove membership when challenged. Frequently they are given in respect of special events or operations, or in recognition of achievement, or exchanged during visits to other organisations.
Challenge coins inevitably became popular collectable items amongst service personnel and, later, civilian collectors.
This collection was commissioned by the Royal Navy to celebrate the introduction of the new aircraft carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, due to enter service in 2020 and 2023.
Each gold-plated coin represents one of the Carriers and is presented in a wooden gift box with a certificate of authenticity detailing this new class of Carrier. The reverse of each coin shows the Royal Navy Flag.
Coin diameter is 44mm.
