Comments

The standard weight of these coins was 10/11 troy ounce (436.4 grains). Under the Coinage Act of 1946, the composition changed from .500 silver to .750 copper/.250 nickel but the weight remained unchanged.

This coin was not included in demonetization legislation when decimalization was introduced in 1971. It has been confirmed by the Royal Mint that the coin remains legal tender, having been remonetized with a value of 25 pence.

The coin was issued alongside a £5 coin in a 2-coin set in 2015 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Churchill's death. The coins for the 2015 set were taken from the secondary market and had sales of 4,987.
