Sir Winston Churchill is often described as the "greatest living Englishman". A man of many talents, he is known for being a soldier, politician, writer and an artist.
He served as Prime Minister twice. His first term of office was from 1940 until 1945. He saw Britain through the Second World War, his words of courage helping the nation through the difficult time. His second term of office was from 1951-1955.
When Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965, a commemorative crown was issued in his honour. This was the first time a 'commoner' was portrayed on a British coin as opposed to a member of the Royal Family.
With the 2015 crown, Sir Winston Churchill is the only statesman to have two UK crowns issued in his honour. His image was also chosen to represent 'Courage' on the 2010 £5 coin in the Best of Britain Series. The Royal Mint have honoured him on a second coin this year, the 2015 £20.
The obverse shows the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The obverse features the inscription:
ELIZABETH·II·D·G·REG·F·D FIVE POUNDS·2015
British sculptor, Mark Richards, was commissioned to design the portrait for this 2015 Churchill crown.
The design fits with the artistry of the 1965 coin and represents the spirit and character of Sir Winston Churchill who was thought to be larger than life. Only one word is featured in the inscription:
