Exclusive P-47 Thunderbolt Coin – Yours For Just $9.99!

Now you can own an authentic U.S. Half-Dollar enhanced by Mystic with an image of one of the most famous war planes in American history – the P-47 Thunderbolt.  For just $9.99, this coin will give you a glimpse of the plane's history.  It's fun to imagine what important missions this plane might have gone on during its time...  Republic Aviation built the P-47 Thunderbolt during World War II as a high-altitude escort fighter.  Carrying three external fuel tanks allowed P-47s to accompany U.S. Army Air Force (AAF) bombers far into German territory and to travel the vast distances of Pacific Ocean operatinos. In a sustained dive, no other aircraft could stay with the P-47 Thunderbolt.  They frequently attacked ground targets like tanks, airfields, and trains while returning from escort duty.  Fast and heavily armed, the P-47 became the chief Allied low-altitude fighter-bomber. The P-47 was the largest single-engine aircraft built during World War II.  It was nicknamed the Juggernaut, or "Jug," because of its huge size.  Its sturdy construction and air-cooled radial engine enabled the Jug to sustain severe battle damage and keep flying.  The pilot was protected in all but a nose-first crash. The AAF acquired the P-47 in greater numbers than any other fighter.  By the end of the war, more than 15,600 Thunderbolts had been built.  They were active in almost every theater of operations and in the forces of several Allied nations.  P-47 Thunderbolts served with Air National Guard units until 1955.
