50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL
A half-century after the death of Winston Churchill we pay tribute with a first, to honour a man who holds an unrivalled place in history - he is the only statesman to be honoured twice on Britain's coins. The flinty glaze, the lips that spoke such stirring words are unmistakable.
On his death in 1965 Sir Winston Churchill, the man who led Britain through the Second World War and helped guide the world through the dark days of the Cold War, was honoured with a coin struck in his memory. Now 50 years on, he is the first statesman to be commemorated for a second time, a tribute that is worthy of this great man.
This £5 coin, with its unususal facing portrait, honours and reflects the true stature of this man.
Struck in sterling silver, finished to Proof quality, this coin is a wonderful souvenir of the occasion and a real collectable, with just 7,500 to be struck in this limited edition presentation.
