1974 Churchill Centenary Gold Picture Medal
A remarkable artefact and objêt d'art, a gold medallion of Sir Winston Spencer Churchill in the form of a box containing 13 miniatures by F. Jaffé.

The Gold Medallion
A whole rash of commemorative medallions were issued after the death of the great man in 1965, and a further few on the centenary of his birth in 1974. These medallions vary greatly in size and quality. Some are very impressive, being struck in a large size, and with high relief giving great detail. This medallion is one of the most unusual we have seen. not only is it an attractive medal in 18 carat gold, engraved by Norris, but it is in the form of a box. The two halves form a precise push fit, and together they house a collection of 13 miniature coloured prints, plus a further pair of paper "medallions", one each in the inside of the front and rear halves of the box.

The Miniatures

Original Box
Complete with original box, which is itself rather disappointing, and almost detracts from the medallion itself.

The hallmark showing it to be 18 carat gold, with the sponsor's mark TK&S, from the Birmingham Assay office.
The inner lid of the box is foil blocked:
