The Congress of European Movement Standing Cup and Cover reproduces the first gold European Movement Prize, which was presented to Monsieur Jean Monnet at the Congress held in London in 1973, the year of the United Kingdomís entry into the European Economic Community. The prize is to be given each year to an individual for outstanding service to Europe.

Heads around cover: 

MACMILLAN - MONNET - SCHUMAN - SPAAK - ADENAUER - BLUM - CHURCHILL - DE GASPERI

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.

Jean Monnet chose: 'Nous ne coalisons pas des etats -nous unissons des hommes' (We are not unifying states - we are unifying people)

This edition was not sold out so those produced for the winners in 1974,1975 and 1976 were only offered to those who had purchased this first one. (Originally commissioned by the British Council of the European Movement for 6 years but not produced in 1977/8)

(I understand that only about 100 of the first one were sold - the least successful of the Aurum productions)
