One of the Greatest Speeches Ever Made – Reproduced in 24 Carat Gold for the First Time

At 3.00PM on May 13th 1940 Winston Churchill stood in the House of Commons and delivered his first speech as Prime Minister.  In a few brilliant words he outlined his policy to “wage war against a monstrous tyranny” and achieve “victory at all costs”.  He also invited Parliament to support him, famously declaring “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat”.

His words came to define the bulldog determination and spirit of Britain during the darkest days of the Second World War.  For the first time, the complete text of his iconic speech has been beautifully engraved onto a sheet of pure 24 carat gold. It is presented as part of a highly sought after Coin and Polymer banknote set as a fitting tribute to one of the greatest Britons of all time.
