Hello, I really need some help knowing whether this is a satin finish 1965 Churchill Crown., or not. Attached are a few pics of it. The coin actually weighs 28.09 grams, although I have seen many coin sites describing the weight at 28.28 grams or above. The problem I have is that I am not sure what I have here. Is it a common or is it a VIP satin? I also understand that the mint did strike some in silver. I have done research about BOAC Cunard and it was 3 years prior to the 1965 minting that BOAC and Cunard merged and I don't know if this coin in the display case was given to a VIP on a cruise or on a flight. I have went through all available newsprint during the era and could not find anything substantial. I sincerely hope one of you knowledgeable coin experts here can give me some info, or at least point me in the right direction. Is this a Satin Finish or a common? Is it possibly a silver strike because of the different weight? I honestly do appreciate any help at all. Thank you very much. Jay B. firstname.lastname@example.org
