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.

This edition was not sold out so those produced for the winners in 1974 and 1975 were only offered to those who had purchased this first one.

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