The Isle of Man Government has approved the release of this outstanding coin to celebrate the memory of Winston Spencer Churchill sixty years after his famous Victory Salute at the end of the Second World war in May 1945, fifty years since he resigned as Prime minister of the United Kingdom in April 1955 and forty years since his death on January 24, 1965.
Few men in history have achieved so much success in their lifetimes as Sir Winston Churchill, who during his career was a soldier, journalist, author, politician, orator, statesman, painter, and historian. On the brink of defeat at the end of World War II through great leadership, oratory and vision this great parliamentarian rallied the free world and inspired the British people through their darkest hour towards final victory.
His soaring rhetoric during the yearlong period during which Great Britain sood alone against the Nazi war machine stirred a nation and indeed the world. His words bear recalling, particularly at this moment in time: “Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say: ‘This was their finest hour.’ “(June 1940)
This exceptional coin which carries a portrait of Sir Winston Churchill giving his famous “V” for Victory salute, has the wording “60th Anniversary End – Of World War II, 1945” in the surround and the value of 1 Crown at the base. Engraved on Churchill’s right chest are “SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL.”
