A four-coin tribute depicts the spirit of the great statesman

Sir Winston Churchill - in his own words

Sir Winston Churchill: the formidable statesman, whose fearless leadership and rousing words rallied a nation, securing victory in the Second World War. His world-famous speeches are quoted today, inspiring generation after generation. Now, 50 years after his death, a striking set of four £5 coins, struck for Alderney, captures Churchill’s multi-faceted personality: war leader, artist, the character of the man himself and the theme that runs throughout – the skilled orator.

About the Sets

What a tribute this is to one of the most iconic figures in British and world history; one that honours the great man in his own words. This stunning set includes four £5 coins, each with its own unique flair, that unite to reveal Churchill’s story and form a dramatic collection. Royal Mint engraver Lee R. Jones has combined Churchill’s rousing words, some taken from his most famous speeches and some from his private life, and combined them with symbolic images. The result is a vibrant collection with beautiful details, preserved with a sparkling Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

The four coins feature eye-catching reverse designs. One recognises Churchill’s resilience, with a phoenix rising from the flames, another textured design celebrates the unlikely artist, while two more recall pivotal speeches that Churchill made during the Second World War, to galvanise his people in his position as Prime Minister. Just 2,500 sets will be available, likely to prove hugely popular given the interest in this remarkable man and the beauty of the coins struck in his honour.

In 1965 nations united in mourning the loss of one of the most iconic and widely respected leaders the world had ever seen. Sir Winston Churchill’s formidable leadership during the Second World War helped secure the support of the allied forces and, eventually, victory in 1945. His words united a nation and helped to sustain the morale of the armed forces through gruelling years.

Churchill’s varied public and private life has captivated our interest for decades. Both his public and more personal speeches were delivered with passion, wit and humour. Countless writers have penned books on his life, his achievements and his legacy. Churchill’s words have become legend, and now this eye-catching set tells his story decades later, in his own words. So many will want to honour this legendary man and we have created two versions of the set to suit most budgets – one Brilliant Uncirculated with a newly-minted finish, and one in silver Proof including a gold-plated and a colour-printed coin.
