Isle of Man celebrates 140 years of women’s suffrage with brand new £2 coin set!

Did you know that the Isle of Man was the first place in the world where a woman could vote in national elections?

In fact, it was in 1881 that women householders were given the vote – 47 years ahead of the UK!

This momentous event has now been commemorated on a unique four-coin £2 set issued by the Isle of Man to commemorate 140 years since the campaign for women’s suffrage on the island.

The coin set features the names of the four pioneering women who first cast their vote on the Isle of Man, and show the voters names documented as Eliza Jane Goldsmith, Catherine Callow, Esther Kee and Margaret Kelvin.

Limited Availability

This special commemorative £2 set will be on sale for JUST TWO WEEKS, meaning availability is extremely limited and you’ll need to order fast to avoid disappointment.

What’s more, coins from the Isle of Man are particularly sought-after due to their much lower mintage figures compared to UK counterparts and with such a significant topic being celebrated, demand for the new coins is set to be incredibly high.

In celebration of these remarkable coins being issued on the Isle of Man, sets were presented to the President of Tynwald and Speaker of the House of Keys! Tynwald extended suffrage to women who owned land in 1881, 37 years before Westminster did the same.

Your 2021 Isle of Man Women’s Suffrage £2 Set has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and come protectively encapsulated in Official Change Checker packaging, certified to guarantee each coin’s superior quality.

Remember, you have just TWO WEEKS to be one of the lucky collectors to order this set, so don’t miss your chance to own yours for just £34.99 (+p&p). Click here to add these remarkable coins to your collection >>

These coins are so popular that not only have they featured on the Isle of Man Government Release but BBC news even reported on them!

Time to go ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ one more time…brand new Alice 50p coins from the Isle of Man!

Earlier in the year Change Checker revealed a brand new set of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50p coins, authorised for release by the Isle of Man Treasury!

Well today, we have had word that the FINAL 50p coins have been released to celebrate the sequel of Lewis Carroll’s tale nonsense, ‘Through the Looking-glass, and What Alice Found There’.

Alice Through the Looking-Glass 50p Set

Prepare yourself to fall down the rabbit hole one last time with FIVE BRAND NEW 50p coins, each featuring a new design by renowned illustrator Stephen Lee. The designs of these coins are equally as captivating as the first set and likewise depict characters from the book with excerpts of their known quotes, including:

  • Alice “Life what is it but a dream”.
  • The Red Queen “The Queen cried ‘faster, faster!’”
  • The White Queen “That’s the effect of living backwards”.
  • Tweedledum & Tweedledee “There’s nothing to cry about!”
  • March Hare “There’s nothing but hay left now”.

Which coin is your favourite? Let us know in the comments below!

Just like the first BU 50p Set released, only the Alice Single 50p coin will be issued individually. But, you can secure all five stunning coins in Brilliant Uncirculated quality, protectively housed in a bespoke presentation pack, carefully curated by the coins’ designer.

Strictly Limited Edition

But, if you’re looking for the crème de la crème of these coins, you won’t want to be late for the extremely limited Silver Proof versions

Silver 50p coins are, without doubt, the collector’s favourite and a sell-out is inevitable. 

The complete set is strictly limited to just 1,995 worldwide. When compared to the sell-out story of the 2019 UK Gruffalo Silver Proof 50p, which had a mintage of 25,000, it’s almost certain there will not be enough of these Alice, Through the Looking-Glass Silver Proof 50p sets to satisfy demand.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50p Coin

The Alice 50p coin above is the only coin from the collection to have been issued individually, and it celebrates none other than the main character herself, Alice.

The coin, struck to Brilliant Uncirculated Quality, features a carefully curated design of Alice, peering through the looking-glass on her return to Wonderland, alongside a quote from the book; “Life what is it but a dream”.

This coin is available to order today in Brilliant Uncirculated quality for JUST £6.25 (+p&p) and comes protectively housed in a bespoke presentation pack – the perfect pairing I am sure you agree!

And remember, for those collectors looking for a little bit more adventure, this brand new coin is also available in stunning .925 Sterling Silver with an edition limit of JUST 4,995!

Struck to a pristine Proof finish, with the added extra of selective vivid colour printing to bring the design to life, this coin is, without a doubt, going to be one of the most popular ways to own this BRAND NEW release.

Can I find the Alice Through the Looking-Glass 50p coins in my change?

If you’re living on the Isle of Man, then yes!

10,000 of each coin will be entering circulation on the Isle of Man, but when you compare that to the mintage figures for UK coins (our rarest 50p in circulation has a mintage of 210,000) you’ll realise just how few of these coins are actually out there.

Coins issued on the Isle of Man typically have lower mintage figures due to the smaller population of just 84,000 which means that their coins are particularly sought-after amongst collectors.

And, based on the popularity of the first Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Set I’m sure that British Isles collectors will be super quick to snap these ones up!


Alice in Wonderland remains one of the world’s most famous and best-loved children’s tales, with fans spanning across generations.

So with a theme as strong as this, paired with those incredibly low mintage figures and the fact these are the FINAL coins available, I am under no doubt they will be a hit with collectors.
