In 2015 The Royal Mint announced a new two-coin set issued in tribute to the 50th anniversary of the death of the country’s war-time leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who first served as Prime Minister of Great Britain during the war years from 1940 until the post-war election in 1945.

With his death in January 1965 at the age of 90, Queen Elizabeth II granted him the honour of a state funeral, which saw one of the largest assemblies of world statesmen in history. A commemorative crown of 5 shillings was issued later in the year which was the first time ever that a commoner appeared on British coinage, this is the very crown which is included in the Royal Mint’s two-coin anniversary set along with the new £5 crown.


Designed by Mark Richards, the coin includes a new depiction of the man nicknamed “The Bulldog” A front-facing partial portrait is utilised which is primarily positioned towards the left half of the coin. The bold letters “CHURCHILL” are placed along the upper right corner, in a similar fashion as the 1965 version. The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.

The two coins are presented in a green card box and are individually encapsulated. The specially prepared anniversary set also comes with a small booklet highlighting the outstanding aspects of the great man’s life.
