During the summer of 1940, the brave pilots of the RAF defended our shores from the Luftwaffe. At a moment’s notice, the call would come to ‘Scramble!’ and the airmen sprinted to their Hurricanes and Spitfires and took to the skies. Their courage brought a decisive victory and saved the country from invasion.
In honour of those who served during the Battle of Britain, Danbury Mint is proud to present… Scramble!
