Can I find the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50ps 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 and 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 2019 and 2020 Peter Pan 50ps that entered circulation on the Island, 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 for the silver proof versions, these coins are sure to be a hit with collectors.

Let’s a take a look at some other festive issues we’ve seen from the Isle of Man…

2019 Santa £2

2019 Isle of Man Santa £2

Traditionally, the Isle of Man release Christmas themed 50ps most years, however last year, this incredibly popular Santa £2 coin was released

This magical design features an enchanting portrait of Old St. Nick and bears the inscription ‘Nollick Ghennal’ which is Manx for ‘Merry Christmas’.

At the top of the coin, the distinctive Isle of Man Triskelion (three armoured legs) can be seen.

2003 Snowman 50p

2003 Snowman 50p

2003 marked the very first time The Snowman featured on circulating coinage.

The Isle of Man released a limited-edition coin to mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the ‘The Snowman’ by Raymond Briggs.

Only 10,000 of these coins were ever minted, which makes it incredibly sought-after. In fact, this coin sells for well over face value on the secondary market, often fetching more than £200!

Since 2003, the Snowman has featured on a number of Isle of Man Christmas coins, and has even made two appearances on UK coins, which have been incredibly popular with collectors!

2018 Hunt the Wren £2

2018 Isle of Man Hunt the Wren £2

On boxing day on the Isle of Man, communities come together across the island to dance and sing in the streets around “the king of all birds” who is paraded around on a pole. 

Hunt the Wren, as it is known on the island has become one of the most popular yet more unusual Manx traditions in practice today.

The practice dates back to Pagan times and is centred on the wren bird, which is hunted and then danced through the streets on a special pole.

This £2 coin was issued in 2018 by The Isle of Man to celebrate the Manx tradition.

2013 Christmas Wreath and Stocking 50p

2013 Isle of Man Christmas Wreath and Stocking 50p. Source: Coin Update.

This festive 50p was issued in 2013 on the Isle of Man and features a traditional Christmas wreath and stocking.

It is estimated that only 30,000 of these coins entered circulation on the Isle of Man, making them particularly sought-after. Due to the island having a population of less than 85,000, mintages tend to be much lower than we see in the UK.

Designers Matt Dent and Christian Davies have included the words ‘WAR’ and ‘PEACE’ on the reverse of this coin.

In place of the big parties that were planned, people took to their doorsteps to sing and raise a glass over their fence with their neighbours!

The edge inscription of this coin reads ‘JUST TRIUMPH AND PROUD SORROW’ which is incredibly fitting for a coin which marks such a historic anniversary.

It features arrows each pointing across the English Channel to Normandy. Each arrow also has one of the code names used for each of the beaches where Allied troops landed – Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword.
