The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is taking place in England and Wales this summer and to celebrate this iconic event, the Isle Of Man have issued a series of 5 officially licensed 50p coins.
Whilst the designs of these new coins will certainly be of interest to cricket fans, it’s the British Isles coin collectors out there who will be keen to secure these coins for their collection, as each design will be entering circulation on the Isle of Man…
Isle Of Man ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 50p Series
In anticipation of the event, the Isle Of Man have issued this stunning series of 50p coins.
An initial strike of 12,500 of each design will enter circulation on the Isle of Man, and undoubtedly these coins will be highly collectable by both cricket fans and coin collectors alike.
The first coin features a slip catch. The slip fielder is placed behind the batsman on the off side of the field, with the aim of catching an edged ball which is beyond the wicket-keeper’s reach.
The second coin features a cover drive – considered one of the most graceful shots playable in the sport. This involves the player stroking the ball through the covers with well-timed delivery aimed at or outside the off stump.
The next coin features the Cricket World Cup official logo for 2019. This year’s logo shows the iconic ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 trophy placed in the center of the logo.
The fourth coin features a stumping. The action of stumping can only be performed by a wicket-keeper if the wicket-keeper puts down the wicket while the batsman is out of his ground and not attempting a run.
The final coin features a delivery stride. The delivery stride forms part of the bowling action that results in the bowler releasing the ball in the direction of the batsman.
The obverse design of each coin features Jody Clark’s most recent effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which includes the Queen’s shoulders and the Victorian coronation necklace.
History of the ICC Cricket World Cup
Originally, the ICC was founded as the ‘Imperial Cricket Board’ in 1909 to govern international matches involving England, Australia and South Africa. By 1989 the organisation had taken up its current name and now the International Cricket Council has 105 members: 12 Full Members that play Test matches and 93 Associate Members.
The ICC is responsible for cricket’s major international tournaments, of course including the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, which will be hosted by England and Wales from 30 May to 14 July this year.
Limited number entering circulation…
Typically, mintage figures for British Isles coins are notoriously low compared to UK figures, due to the much smaller population.
In fact, last year the Isle of Man released two hugely popular £2 coins to celebrate the TT races, with a mintage of just 3,000 coins each!
Following the popularity of the TT coins, these ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 50ps have an initial mintage of 12,500 coins per design, and I’m sure Change Checkers on the Isle Of Man will be eager to hunt down this summer.

The UK’s incredibly popular Paddington 50p coins are to be followed up by two brand new 2019 coins.
According to the Royal Proclamation, published on 11th April, there will be two new Paddington coins released this year.
The designs are suggested to depict Paddington Bear outside the White Tower at the Tower of London and Paddington Bear outside St Paul’s Cathedral.
It’s expected the coins will be issued later this year with commemorative collector’s editions available in cupro-nickel, Silver and Gold being made available.
Paddington’s journey continues for 2019!
Straight from the darkest Peru, Paddington made his way to the London, and in June 2018 was spotted sat on his suitcase beside the trains at Paddington Station.
Later that year the bear was back, this time proudly waving a Union Jack Flag outside Buckingham Palace.
His journey around London now continues as a new 50p coin is set to mark his latest adventures!
The next 50p collecting craze?
Although all the details have not been released yet and the actual designs are still top secret, following the popularity of last year’s coins, it seems likely that the latest Paddington 50p coin will be a real hit with the British public.
