1965 Specimen Elizabeth II British Crown (Winston Churchill)

Recommended Posts


I may, or may not, have a satin finish 1965 Churchill Crown.  Attached are a few pics of it.

It actually weighs 28.09 grams, although I have seen many coin sites entering their weights at 28.28 grams and above.

My problem is I am not sure what I have here.  Is it a common or is it a VIP satin.  I  understand that the mint struck some in sterling

I have done exhausting research about BOAC Cunard and it was 3 years prior to the 1965 minting that BOAC and Cunard merged.  

I don't know if this commemorative 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 am sincerely hoping a numismatic here can give me some info, or 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 am thanking you in advance for any info you can give me.

Thank you very much.

Jay B.
