Tristan da Cunha, 50 Pence (Churchill) 1999 Silver Proof
Winston Churchill is one of Britain's most famous heroes and one of only two non-Royals featured on our crowns. This Silver Proof 50 Pence dated 1999 was issued by the tiny island nation of Tristan da Cunha and of course not many were struck, in fact, you almost never see them. You Have Churchill on the reverse with World War Two airplanes flying overhead the obverse has H. M. Queen Elizabeth II. We cannot remember the last time we had one of these. Supplies are very limited and it is one of the keys of the Churchill series. Priced at less than half what the mints are charging for a crown today. Each silver proof crown comes in a protective capsule.
