Success at Taranto changed the balance of power in the Mediterranean. This not only had dramatic repercussions in naval terms, but also in assisting the North African Campaign and providing the blue print for the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbour. It started the decline in importance of the capital ship as the aircraft carrier rose to the ascendant. Something of such significance should be commemorated properly and we think that this very special coin does just that.
Carefully enamelled to show a Swordfish in the thick of the battle on the front and a detailed close up of a Swordfish and brave crew on the reverse, this is a dramatic collectors piece.
Supplied in plush 'velvet' finish presentation box.
