The Winston Churchill commemorative Crown was a large issue for a copper-nickel coin that really didn’t circulate. 9.64 million were produced. Their value is about US25 cents and they are no longer legal tender. There are a much smaller number of specimen strikes with a satin-finish. These coins are in higher relief and have a much different look than the regular issues. Value: about $500.
