The third £20 for £20 honours the great British statesman

Winston Churchill, ‘Greatest of Britons’

Sir Winston Churchill is remembered and celebrated as a stirring speaker and a legendary leader. In 1965 people the world over mourned the death of one of the ‘Greatest of Britons’. The Royal Mint struck a commemorative coin then, and half a century on we mark the anniversary of Churchill’s death with a fitting tribute – a fine silver United Kingdom coin. Just the third edition of these special coins to be available at face value, it is sure to sell out like its predecessors.

About the coin

Sir Winston Churchill – the great British prime minister – whose leadership in the Second World War inspired Britain’s armed forces, reassured a nation and encouraged the support of allies that united for victory in 1945. Such an influential figure deserves to be honoured, and The Royal Mint has chosen Churchill as the subject for the third UK £20 fine silver coin to be available at face value.

Struck in 999 fine silver, struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, this is an official UK coin and a tribute to the man affectionately nicknamed the ‘British Bulldog’. The coin’s design by sculptor Etienne Millner features Churchill’s steely gaze, familiar and defiant. Struck to crisp Brilliant Uncirculated finish, this coin is sold at face value – £20 for a £20 – how else can such an excellent piece of art and history be enjoyed at such an achievable price? Only 200,000 of these coins will ever be struck. The first £20 coin sold out, and with so many wanting to continue the £20 series and many more wishing to honour Churchill, this coin is sure to prove just as popular.

Sir Winston Churchill, the great British statesmen world-renowned for his rousing words, his unyielding leadership and his formidable character. Public polls regularly see Churchill voted as the ‘Greatest Briton’, a sign of his enduring legacy and unwavering popularity. During the Second World War his leadership as Prime Minister was pivotal in protecting the freedoms that we enjoy today. 

In 1965 The Royal Mint struck a coin to commemorate Churchill’s passing, and now it strikes another to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary statesman’s death. Sir Winston Churchill has been selected as the third subject for the recently introduced £20 coin. The first £20 coin sold out and the subject of this third coin will make it highly collectable. Only 200,000 of these special coins – limited to ten per household to ensure we can satisfy demand – will ever be struck. They will be sought out by Churchill enthusiasts as well as collectors of silver coins and, more specifically, collectors of the UK £20 coins.

I bought some of these coins some time ago. It will not be a collectors classic. The design is not particularly clear and too many have been made. The market speaks and only 60% have been sold at the time of writing but there is a 10 per household limit which does not make sense with a slow moving product.
Can we have clearer designs and smaller production runs. Quality and not quantity please.

This was part of my first ever order and I'm delighted with it. £20 for £20 and a tribute to a great leader who got Britain through its darkest hours.. Absolute bargain by anyone's standards.
