We received our first order of coins on the 1st December, 2014.

Sir Winston Churchill

Sir Winston Churchill is often described as the "greatest living Englishman". A man of many talents, he is known for being a soldier, politician, writer and an artist.

He served as Prime Minister twice. His first term of office was from 1940 until 1945. He saw Britain through the Second World War, his words of courage helping the nation through the difficult time. His second term of office was from 1951-1955.

When Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965, a commemorative crown was issued in his honour. This was the first time a 'commoner' was portrayed on a British coin as opposed to a member of the Royal Family.

With the 2015 crown, Sir Winston Churchill is the only statesman to have two UK crowns issued in his honour. His image was also chosen to represent 'Courage' on the 2010 £5 Coin in the Best of Britain Series. The Royal Mint have honoured him on a second coin this year, the 2015 Twenty Pound.

Design

The reverse was designed by sculptor, Mark Richards. The design fits with the artistry of the 1965 coin and represents the spirit of Sir Winston Churchill - larger than life.

The obverse shows the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of the Queen.

* With extortionate issue prices we won't be stocking these coins as we do not believe it represents value for money.

Value

We think the silver proof piedforts, gold plated silver proof and platinum piedfort too expensive to make them a worthwhile purchase. If, however, you would like to purchase quantities of these coins, i.e. 10 or more please contact us as we may still be able to source them at considerable discount compared to the Royal Mint.

Wanted

We play an active part in the secondary market for many platinum, gold and silver products, including commemorative crowns so we would be more than happy to purchase a 2013 (or any other date) crown from you. This obviously means that we may at some point have one for sale, so if you would like to telephone us and place an order we would hope to fulfil it with time.

Gold £5 Crowns

For current pricing on the gold proof versions of any of the Five Pound Crowns, from 1990 onwards, please use the £5 Gold Coins pages of our "Tax Free Gold" website.

British Platinum Piedfort Crowns

Starting in 2004, the Royal Mint has issued platinum piedfort proof crowns. These are naturally very expensive. We can usually supply them new to order if required, but we prefer to source lower priced ones from the secondary market. Please contact us if you are interested.
