WWI commemorative coin to go into circulation

50p features Douglas War Memorial soldier

Tens of thousands of coins commemorating the centenary of the end of World War One will be put into circulation in the Isle of Man.

The specially minted 50p pieces feature the soldier from the Douglas War Memorial, alongside poppies.

The design was originally commissioned by Westminster Collections, who are the marketing partner of Tower Mint, for a special commemorative crown.

Investments and Banking Manager for Treasury Colin Campbell says people in the Island will soon find the 50p counterparts in their pockets.
