In 2017, the Isle of Man TT celebrated its 110th anniversary.
And to mark the anniversary, the Isle of Man issued a £5 coin to celebrate the renowned annual event which 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!
However, this year brings a very special release of the coin...
This is definitely one for the collector. Not originally scheduled for release, the coin features the famous Senior TT Trophy, with a special 2018 striking date — a rare occurrence and one that will make this coin hugely collectable to not only IOM TT fans but sharp-eyed coin collectors.
It features the same design as the 2017 coin, 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 is a rare occurrence and so we expect these coins to be snapped up quickly.
