In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5 to honour Winston S. Churchill, our
wartime Prime Minister. We have offered the Sterling Silver Piedfort of this coin
before, but this is the first time that we offer the regular thickness. It is struck in Proof
Sterling Silver rather than the double thickness of the Piedfort. Churchill is always
popular and as we have less than 40 examples available it should be a quick seller.
You have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and Sir Winston Churchill in a
rather interesting and I think beautiful portrait. You have had the Piedfort now is the
time for the ‘regular’ VIP Sterling Silver Proof.
In 2000 the Queen Mother celebrated her 100th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special
commemorative crownsized £5 piece to honour this most important event.
You have the Queen Mother on one side and her daughter The Queen on the other, be sure
you call heads with this coin. We understand that they only struck 14,850 of these Sterling
Silver Piedfort, after all they are double the normal thickness of a Crown and thus quite huge.
Each coin comes in the original Royal Mint packaging with the certificate, capsule and outer
The last time we offered these we quickly sold out, so if you want one for your collection,
we suggest that you get in quickly. Today the Royal Mint charges £155.00 for a Piedfort.
