Each cup is an identical copy of the first one produced, except each prize-winner chooses a quotation from his own speeches or writings which is applied, in his own language, in fine calligraphy around the base.

Spinelli chose: 'L'Europa non cada dal'cielo' (You won't find Europe growing on trees)

When I contacted John Sutherland-Hawes about the complete sets Aurum Designs produced this one was not listed. 

With this goblet is a letter dated October 1978 from him stating: ' ....... was especially produced to your order ....'

I assume that this last cup was not advertised but only produced for previous purchasers of the first three if they enquired. There is also correspondence doubting any production of the last two in this series - 1977 & 1978.
