This Was a Man – honouring the great Sir Winston Churchill

A tribute to a man larger than life

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 gaze, the lips that spoke such stirring words are unmistakable. The unusual facing portrait fills just part of this £5 coin to reflect the true stature of this man – this artist, politician, soldier, father, mentor, writer, husband, this great citizen of the world.

About The Coin

In 1965 Sir Winston Churchill, the man who lead Britain through the dark days of war and inspired the world, was honoured with a coin struck in his memory. In 2015, 50 years later, we proudly strike a second coin. It is a worthy tribute indeed – the first time a British statesman has been commemorated twice on our coins. This £5 coin features an artful portrait by Mark Richards FRBS, who has captured the larger than life essence of this legendary figure. His design – featuring a facing portrait, so difficult to master – extends beyond the borders of the coin, yet the flinty gaze is instantly recognisable.

Piedfort coins, struck on double-thickness blanks, are the collector’s prize. And this silver Proof Piedfort will be on the wish-list of collectors around the world. So few will be struck – just 2000, each with numbered Certificate of Authenticity and booklet exploring the great man – that you should act quickly to secure your coin.
