Frequently Asked Questions

1965 Churchill coins aren't really made of silver but they are technically UK legal tender with a value of 25p. These Crowns may be worth a little more to collectors who pay £1-3 for these commemorative coins.

1965 Churchill Crown coins will not be accepted by the majority of shops and banks. Reportedly, these can be used to pay for goods and services in Post Offices but our local branch will not accept them.

Sir Winston Churchill became the first non-royal to appear on United Kingdom coins in 1965. Oliver Cromwell had previously appeared on a limited number of English coins, struck three centuries earlier.

Like all UK Crown coins issued after 1818, including 1965 Churchill Crowns are technically legal tender with a face value of 25. In practice these coins cannot be spent in shops but may be used at some Post Offices.

The Royal Mint did not issue an official medal following Sir Winston Churchill's death in 1965. However, a number of private mints and goldsmiths produced commemorative pieces for sale to collectors.

Gold is an investment you can rely on, especially when world markets are volatile. It’s traded and respected globally and scarcity vs demand means it will continue to increase its value.

Yes, and we guarantee it. We are a member of the BNTA (The British Numismatic Trade Association) and all our coins are checked for their authenticity.

Although collectors and investors often worry about counterfeits, it's actually very hard to convincingly fake a gold coin. Gold is extremely dense and to use another metal and gold-plate it would result in a coin that is under-weight, over-diameter or half-again as thick, something that would be spotted very easily by an expert. You can buy from us 100% worry free.

For all UK orders, there is no shipping charge - the price you see is the price you pay. For simplicity, we have a flat rate charge for all international orders.
