The esteem in which G for George is held never ceases to amaze me. The commemorative tributes created by The Bradford Exchange have sold out of their editions is record-breaking time. When you look beyond the impeccable quality and artistry of each piece and consider its subject matter, Australia’s affection for the Lancaster is easy to understand. Defying the odds with its Australian crews, George’s success over war-torn Europe elevated the Anzac spirit to a new level of respect in the eyes of our Allied comrades. At home, we observed each new victory as bringing the world one step closer to peace. When George arrived in Australia, it was like a favourite son had returned. That affection has remained undiminished in 75 years. Relive this historic event with the G For George 75th Anniversary Touchdown in Australia Golden Five Crowns, exclusive to The Bradford Exchange.

The design of the coin captures the excitement shared by Australians as George made his final approach on Australia soil. The full colour, thunderous view of the Lancaster in motion is magnificently contrasted by minted statistics of its journey. They serve as a reminder that in 1944, a journey of such epic scope, across a world still ravaged by war, was just as dangerous as a night sortie into Germany. The date of George’s arrival is very much the beginning of the G for George legend and not the end. From this moment, a hero had returned home. One embraced by each new generation who learnt of his exploits and heroism, now beautifully expressed in this stunning achievement in the minter’s art.

Impressive is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold and accented with a 75th anniversary privy mark cast in valuable rhodium-platinum, creating a coin that is simply without parallel. The technical complexities of striking at such a large diameter ensures that the worldwide mintage has been set remarkably low, at just 1,944. This means that each one of these limited edition coins has a rarity value in addition to its collectability, which would usually push the release price too high for most people. Strong demand is expect so don’t delay, order yours now!
