Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has an idea what this coin is worth. 
My grandmother gave me this coin 5 years ago, unfortunately without certificate Cry

This is what I found on the internet about the coin:

"In 1965 a number of medallists produced medals or medallions of Sir Winston Churchill, in gold, silver or bronze.
The medal we feature on this page is one of the best, in our opinion, and was issued by A. Edward Jones of Birmingham. It is a magnificent large uniface medal with a realistic and lifelike portrait of the great man in semi profile to the left. It is beautifully engraved, struck in high relief.

A certificate which accompanies the medallion states:-

This Gold Medallion has been struck to commemorate the life of the Rt. Hon. Sir winston Churchill, K.G., O.M., C.H., M.P., 1874 - 1965, "The greatest man of our time."
The design portrays Sir Winston Churchill when he was at the height of his power and fame during the second World War.
The reverse of the medallion is inscribed with Sir Winston Churchill's famous words "We shall never surrender". "Our aim is victory". Only 2,000 of these Medallions have been struck and the above number (757) appears on the reverse of the medallion.
(Signature) Managing Director, A. Edward Jones Ltd, Silversmiths, St. Dunstan Works, Pemberton Street, Birmingham 18."
