We’re just over a week away from the first Isle of Man Manx Grand Prix race of 2023!
This world-famous event sees the likes of motorcycle legends, Carl Fogarty, Steve Hislop, and Michael Dunlop (to name a few) tackle the infamous Isle of Man mountain roads.
Crowds flock to the island from the world over and, as 2023 marks the centenary, this year is set to be the biggest yet!
So, it’s only fitting that to celebrate 100 years of the Manx Grand Prix, a BRAND NEW £2 coin has been released.
A Winning Design
The eye-catching design of this new £2 coin features the renowned Manx Grand Prix A.B. Crookall trophy, which is awarded by the Manx Motorcycle Club each year to winner of the Senior Manx Grand Prix.
You’ll also spot the official MGP logo on the reverse, bordered by a decorative laurel wreath. Meanwhile, the obverse design features King Charles III’s effigy by Glyn Davies.
Iconic Isle of Man Sporting Coins
Ask any British Isles collector and you can bet that one of their top themes will include the Isle of Man sporting coins.
For years, the TT race coins have been sought-after among collectors, with many selling for hefty sums on the secondary market.
The first Isle of Man TT coin was a 50p issued in 1981, and a new TT 50p has been released most years since.
Now we see a new Isle of Man sporting £2 – issued to celebrate 100 years of the Manx Grand Prix – I’ve no doubt collectors will be racing to get their hands on this coin!
