The King's Speech Silver Proof 5oz
1939, a history defining year not just for Britain but for countries across the world. The declaration of the Second World War and the beginning of four long years of fighting.
To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII and to honour King George VI as the calming and steadfast figure through the years of peril and hardship, this brand new Silver Proof 5oz coin has been issued.
Struck from 5 ounces of .999 solid Silver to a pristine Proof finish, this coin is the first in the world to feature the entire speech made by King George VI declaring the outbreak of WWII, which has been selectively plated in 24ct gold.
The iconic speech has been engraved onto the coin using specialist micro-engraving technology, allowing for this superbly intricate detail to really bring the coin to life.
A pull-quote ‘STAND CALM AND FIRM AND UNITED’ features around the outer edge. In the middle of the coin sits the date on which the speech was made – 03.09.1939.
The impressive 65mm diameter of this 5oz coin has enabled the designer to create an image with a level of detail truly fitting for such an historic anniversary. To ensure you can fully appreciate the intricacies on display, a FREE magnifying glass will be sent with the coin.
At over 150 grams in weight, you will feel the quality and experience the craftsmanship that has gone into creating this special coin. A coin that is a fitting tribute to one of Britain’s most iconic leaders who gave his people solace in 1939 as the outbreak of WWII was announced.
