2012 Niue 3x 1 oz Silver $2 WWII Nose Art Proof Set

2012 Niue 3x 1 oz Silver $2 WWII Nose Art Proof Set

Product Details

Mintage of only 3,000 sets!
This coin set celebrates Nose Art with famous imagery from World War II! It consists of three 1 oz .999 silver coins with color designs on the reverse that represent some of the most famous Nose Art of WWII Bombers. Ever since men went to war in airplanes, they have felt the need to decorate their mounts with unofficial and personal markings known as Nose Art. Often frowned upon by authorities and admired by the rest, these colourful decorations have been inspiring, emotive, aggressive, humorous, cynical or even tasteful.

The designs shown in this set are the very famous and ever-popular "Memphis Belle," "Briefing Time," and "Yellow Rose." The coins also incorporate background detailing of rivets in the plane panels. On the obverse, the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Each set is presented in a custom tin replicating plane paneling. A certificate of authenticity comes with each set.

With only 3,000 made, and only a very small fraction secured by APMEX, these sets will sell out fast! Do not lose time and resort to paying higher premiums on the secondary market. Buy yours straight from APMEX today, while we have them in stock! This would be a great gift for any veteran, plane enthusiast, pinup enthusiast, or someone with a fascination for World or U.S. History.

      Comments about 2012 WWII Nose Art - 3 x 1 oz Silver Collectible Coin Set:

      I bought this as a gift for my brother in law who loves WWII nose art. The coins are magnificient, very well packaged and beautifully presented in a metal case which can be found in a protective cardboard case. Both cases are covered with the same theme art of WWII nose art. This is just a great gift.

      Comments about 2012 WWII Nose Art - 3 x 1 oz Silver Collectible Coin Set:

      1st time I purchased non-bullion coins and was really surprised. All 3 of them are pretty cool with nice detail. The box and tin are not numbered but are still provide interest. If you are a fan of WWII or more specifically, pinup type art (like bettie page) its a collection you will enjoy.
