While best known for being Prime Minister of Great Britain during the Second World War and contributing to the defeat of the Nazis, Sir Winston Churchill was a man of many talents. He was a soldier and served in Cuba, India, Sudan, and South Africa. He was a writer, both as a war correspondent and as a historian. He even won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953. He was also a celebrated orator, whose speeches are often quoted today. He was also an artist who had has artwork accepted by the Royal Academy under a pseudonym. Fifty years on from his death, The Royal Mint released a series of Five Pound coins in commemoration, including this platinum proof edition. The reverse features a design by sculptor Mark Richards of a close-up portrait of the former Prime Minister. It focuses on elements that make him instantly recognisable, such as his jawline, and eyes. Only one word is inscribed in the reverse: ‘CHURCHILL.’ The obverse carries Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the queen who knighted Churchill in the first year of her reign. Around the edge is an inscription reading ‘NEVER FLINCH, NEVER WEARY, NEVER DESPAIR.’ A total of just 90 of these £5 Crowns were issued in this platinum proof format, struck in 0.999 fine platinum. It weighs 94.20 grams and has the standard diameter of 38.61 milimetres. Your coin is offered in its original packaging from The Royal Mint and comes with the certificate of authenticity.
