The coin re-issued for Isle of Man TT fans…
For two weeks of the year since 1907, the small island of the Isle of Man plays host to the most dangerous motor racing event in the world…
The prestigious Isle of Man TT takes place on public roads spanning 37.73 miles around the island, with over 200 sharp twists and bends and rising up to 1,300ft off sea-level!
Last year, to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the TT Races, a £5 was issued depicting the famous Senior TT Trophy to celebrate the renowned event.
And the popularity of the Isle of Man TT races has resulted in a very special release for 2018…
The coin has been re-issued and re-dated for 2018. The brand new coin features the same design as last year, depicting the esteemed senior TT racing trophy, the pinnacle of road racing awards. The trophy itself features Mercury, the Winged God of the Messengers from Roman Mythology standing atop a winged wheel.
As collectors know, a re-struck coin does not happen very often so we expect this to be snapped up quickly.
