Isle of Man, Winston Churchill 100th Birthday
In 1974 the Isle of Man issued a One Crown, crownsized coin for the Centenary of Churchill 1874-1974. It has H. M. the Queen on the obverse. It is a much better designed and struck than our own Royal Mint Churchill crown. But there was a whole heck of lot less Isle of Man Churchill crowns struck than Royal Mint crowns. They were struck in cupro-nickel by our own Pobjoy Mint and are denominated as ‘One Crown’. It is a coin that we have not had for quite a long time and even now we have only 75 coins in stock. Get while you can, especially if you are a Churchill collector.
