Watch below to see for yourself…
Featuring a personal nod to Britain’s wartime leader
Released to mark 150 years since the birth of Britain’s recognisable wartime leader, Sir Winston Churchill, and the design includes a nod to this important anniversary.
The clock face that sits behind a portrait of Churchill is set to 11:30, which was specifically chosen to represent his Date of Birth – 30th November 1874.
Churchill’s impact on the nation has been acknowledged on multiple coins over the years – in fact, he was the first individual other than a monarch to appear on a British coin when The Royal Mint issued the 1965 Churchill Crown. And significantly, this year also marks the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings – the epitome of Churchill’s wartime success.
But this piece stands out as one of the most impressive and innovative tributes to his pivotal leadership…
Struck EIGHT times
The complex design features an instantly recognisable depiction of Sir Winston Churchill as a senior statesman with his signature cane in hand upon the outset of a clock. And the design was carefully considered with special attention paid to placement and intricacies of each layer.
That’s because a proprietary multi-layered technique was applied to bring the design to life – that means each piece has been struck EIGHT times…
The result is an impressive layered Pure Silver construction with each layer revealing even more details and creating an impressive three-dimensional effect on the coin.
AVAILABLE BY APPLICATION ONLY:

Introducing the Royal British Legion’s 2023 Masterpiece Silver 5oz Coin
Click the black dots on the image above to learn about each of the key features of this year’s masterpiece – and then continue reading below to get the full story!
Let’s journey through the truly unique features of this brand new ‘Masterpiece’.
At the heart of this stunning coin lies a tangible connection to one of the most iconic events of World War II – the Dambusters Raid. This year marked the 80th anniversary of the raid.
Let me explain. At the centre of the coin, you can see there is a Lancaster aircraft. This feature has been crafted with the metal from the starboard outer engine housing of Avro Lancaster PA474 – the same type of aircraft that participated in the historic mission!
This bridges the gap between past and present, allowing us to hold a piece of history in our hands.
The artwork on the coin showcases a powerful scene – a Lancaster dropping the two petal Poppy® over The Mall – this touching image is inspired by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s tradition of dropping poppies to commemorate those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom. The scene pays tribute to the sacrifices of those that have fallen.
The original piece of Lancaster included in the Masterpiece is from the exact same plane that has participated in this symbolic act of Remembrance by the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Struck from pure Silver the ‘Masterpiece’ design is completed with the Lancaster being flanked by a Spitfire and a Hurricane – two legendary aircraft that played pivotal roles in defending the skies during WWII – representing the courage of the pilots who used them to fight for our freedom.
Look closely, and you’ll discover another layer of significance in the coin’s design. In the background, Buckingham Palace is also featured on the map. This stands as a poignant reminder of Royalty’s role in difficult times for the nation – as well as a nod to the significant year the Royal family has had.
