1965 UK Winston Churchill Crown

1965 UK Winston Churchill Crown

In 1965, The Royal Mint did something completely unprecedented and issued a coin to honour the life of Sir Winston Churchill.

Prior to this issue, no United Kingdom coin had ever depicted any person outside the Royal family.

Understandably, the 1965 Sir Winston Churchill Crown was, and remains, a hugely popular issue and a staple of any British coin collection.

This first of its kind a piece of numismatic history

2020 marks 55 years since the death of Churchill and understandably, this incredibly popular crown (now over half a century old!) is even more sought-after by collectors.

To this day Churchill remains one of only four people to have been commemorated on a coin within a year of their death quite the honour!

This 1965 crown commemorates the life of one of Britain’s greatest leaders, and 55 years on, it has become a piece of British and numismatic history in its own right.
