Coin Story

Ever since men went to war in aeroplanes, they have felt the need to decorate their mounts with unofficial and personal markings known as Nose Art. Often frowned upon by authorities, these colourful decorations have in turn been inspiring, emotive, aggressive, humorous, cynical or even tasteful.

Reverse Design

These coin represent some of the most famous Nose Art of WWII Bombers. Background detailing of rivets in the plane panels.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Packaging

Each set is presented in a custom tin replicating plane paneling. A certificate of authenticity comes with each set.
