New Manx coins out

The latest set of Manx coins was released on Monday, with a couple of significant changes.

There are no new 1p and 2p pieces, and there will be a proper issue of £5 coins for the very first time.

'Metal fivers' have been minted since the early 80s, but only in small quantities for collectors.Local coin expert Mike Southall was also releasing the second edition of a book on the history of Manx currency on Monday, to tie in with the circulation.
