A winning design

This year, the Isle of Man TT £2 coin highlights Creg-ny-Baa – the infamous corner from the TT race course. The reverse design, by Glyn Davies, features a daring motorcyclist riding around Creg-ny-Baa.

This famous corner is home to the Creg-ny-Baa pub, which sits beside a grandstand that overlooks the race course, both of which also feature on the coin.

Since the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022, Isle of Man coinage now features King Charles III on the obverse. Of course, the Official British Isles King Charles III effigy was also designed by Glyn Davies – meaning he’s responsible for both sides of this coin!

Both the obverse and reverse of the 2024 Isle of Man £2 have been designed by Glyn Davies

Did you know? Creg-ny-Baa translates to ‘rock of the cow’ in English, probably originating from a rock where cows scratched themselves.

Entering circulation

Previous Isle of Man TT coins have always been popular with both collectors and motor enthusiasts. This is due to their small mintages compared to their UK counterparts and the fact that they sometimes crop up in UK coinage. Although Isle of Man coins aren’t legal tender in the UK, there is a chance you could spot one in your change.

And excitingly, just 7,500 2024 Isle of Man TT £2 coins will enter circulation on the island. That’s half the circulating mintage of the 2023 Isle of Man TT £2!

Numismatic history of the TT races

The first Isle of Man TT coin was a 50p issued in 1981, and a new TT coin has been released most years since. The TT 50ps, along with other denominations have proved incredibly popular amongst collectors and motoring enthusiasts alike, with some selling for over £700 on eBay!

Here are a few of our favourite Isle of Man TT coins.


An Isle of Man TT £2 was issued in 2023 to mark the centenary of the Sidecar race being introduced to the TT races. This meant both racer and passenger could take part in the ‘Ultimate Road Race’. The design shows an incredibly detailed depiction of the Sidecar riding through Parliament Square on the Isle of Man.

15,000 of these coins entered circulation on the Isle of Man, meaning collectors and the general public had the chance to find one in their change! But there were many who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the 2023 Isle of Man TT £2 and our initial allocation sold out in just 24 hours!

After a 2 year break due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the TT races returned in 2022 and two new £2 coins were issued to celebrate.

One of the coins featured the iconic TT Grandstand which marks the start and end of the race. The other represented the TT race marshals, most of whom are usually volunteers or motorsports enthusiasts.

A Crown coin was also issued in celebration of the event. It featured the official TT logo in front of the race route map and a chequered flag background.


In 2019, the Isle of Man released two £2 coins marking 112 years since the first TT race in 1907.

The reverse designs features legendary rider, Steve Hislop, racing the Tourist Trophy track.

Steve ‘Hizzy’ Hislop is an 11 time winner of the notorious Tourist Trophy races. His extraordinary racing career has cemented him as a hero of the TT mountain circuit.

In 1998, the Isle of Man released the Isle of Man Car Circulation £2 coin featuring three old-style race cars on the track.

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.
