Now you can own a collectible coin picturing one of the planes responsible for defending Britain during World War II.

There are also many examples displayed in museums, though these are no longer airworthy. This coin is a reminder of the Spitfire's important role in securing Allied victory during World War II, it will make a neat addition to your collection.
