During these chaotic times, everybody wishes for a hero. It might explain why when we released the first in a series called “Real Heroes”, the Fighter Pilot, it sold out in record time. The combination of ultra-high relief, stunning details and unique finishes made this product a huge success.
Such a special topic deserves some limited, exclusive editions. In addition to the sold-out silver issue, CIT is proud to release the Fighter Pilot in three stunning, elite versions.
Featured is a 1 oz Gold, 1 oz Platinum, and a large 5 oz Gold edition that is done in Black Proof. The 1 oz Gold and Platinum are limited to 199. The 5 oz Gold is limited to only 29. The 1 oz Gold and Platinum show the same high relief design as the original Silver, but this time, the visor is shown in a stunning mirrored proof surface. This effect will remind you on the aviator style sunglasses that these pilots typically wear. The 5 oz Gold is done in Black Proof with the visor left in the original gold finish to allow for a stunning contrast to the Black Proof surface. The two pilots walking on the obverse are also left in the original gold finish.
No matter which version you get, you will feel like an Ace when holding one in your hands.
