Years of issue:
The 2019 Battle of Britain 50p was reissued in 2019 as part of the 50th Anniversary of the 50p Celebrations. The Battle of Britain was an intense air battle fought mainly throughout the summer of 1940 between Germany and Britain. The name for the conflict was derived from a Winston Churchill speech in which he said “The Battle of France is over. I expect the Battle of Britain is about to begin”.
This coin was released as a Brilliant Uncirculated commemorative issue in the Military History 50p set and did not enter general circulation.
