Canada Mint Releases Winston Churchill “The Roaring Lion”

Winston Churchill coin from the Canada Mint, September 2019

“The Roaring Lion” is launching this month from The Royal Canadian Mint. This limited edition collectible is the third coin that features an image by Karsh and as usual the product is spectacular.

The coin features a reproduction of Yousuf Karsh’s portrait of Churchill, known as “The Roaring Lion” after Churchill’s comment to Karsh “You can even make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed!”

Our director, Mr. Fielder and Mrs. Karsh joined our colleagues at the Mint for a private tour earlier this year. See the Mint’s blog post about their visit.
