To commemorate the First World War Armistice Centenary, the Isle of Man Government has chosen to present every school child living on the island with a special coin – The First World War Centenary 50p Coin.

Working in partnership with the IOM Government, The Westminster Collection has developed an exclusive proof version of this hugely poignant coin, struck to the highest possible finish.

The reverse of this stunning coin features ‘The Manxman’ from the top of the Douglas War Memorial surrounded by a wreath of poppies which have been selectively coloured in red ink.

A quote from the memorial “Their name liveth for evermore” is engraved in the centre of the coin with the XI.XI.XI date.

The obverse features the QEII portrait by Jody Clark.
