In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a Silver Proof £5 to honour Sir Winston Churchill. For VIP collectors they even issued a piedfort or double the normal thickness of this crownsized coin in Proof Sterling Silver. We believe that when it was issued they sold it for £155.00.
Someone in the United States bought a quantity and had them ‘slabbed’; that is graded and put into plastic holders to protect them. Well they came out Gem Proof
grading 70 out a possible 70 points.
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.
