2018 Isle of Man Hunt the Wren CERTIFIED BU £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 brand new £2 coin has been issued by The Isle of Man this festive season to celebrate the Manx tradition.

A limited quantity of these coins will enter circulation on the Isle of Man but today you can secure the Brand New coin for your collection in superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality.  

Of course it will also be protectively encapsulated and certified with a hologram to guarantee its superior quality.
