The £2 Coin's Design

The design of this Royal Mint issue draws inspiration from blueprints and cartography. WWI pilots were depended upon to create reliable maps of the constantly changing landscapes.

The coin features a pilot and his observer flying a Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8 plane over the battle of Arras as they perform a reconnaissance mission. Whilst the plane is rendered in realistic detail, the landscape below is a stylised, map-like style.

The writing around the coin's obverse reads "1914-1918 The War In The Air". Lettering around the edge remembers those who sacrificed their lives with the words "The Sky Rained Heroes".
