The Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) reinforces the message of peace, love, and happiness this festive season by giving its customers an opportunity to purchase the IOM government treasury’s 2017 Christmas £5 coin, which features a dove — a well-known and universal symbol of peace.
The £5 coin depicts a very familiar image of a dove carrying an olive branch with outstretched wings, surrounded by a Christmas wreath. The coin bears the inscription Nollick Ghennal, which is Manx for “Merry Christmas.” The engraving on the edge of the coin reads Shee dy row er y thalloo, which translates to “Peace on Earth.”
This highly collectible treasury coin is presented in a beautiful gift pack featuring snowy scenes from the Isle of Man against a Manx tartan background. The Prooflike gift pack is part of a limited edition of 1,500 and each pack is individually numbered. Priced at £27.50, this coin, minted by Tower Mint, is packaged in a bespoke card that contains a certificate of authenticity from IOMPO. This Christmas-themed coin is also available with a Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) finish and is priced at £16 per gift pack.
Isle of Man Stamps & Coins General Manager Maxine Cannon said, “Christmas is that special time of the year when family and friends gather and exchange gifts to express their affection to one another. This 2017 Christmas £5 Coin that features the iconic image of a dove will make an exceptionally wonderful Christmas present, as it will not only be a treasured possession, it also conveys the message of peace, love, and happiness to the receiver.”
Maxine added, “I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers, on Island and everywhere else in the world, a very merry Christmas and may the spirit of this festive season bring you peace and happiness throughout the year.”
To further spread the cheer of Christmas, the IOMPO will be giving customers who purchase the BU finish or the Prooflike version of the 2017 Christmas £5 Coin from its website or direct from the Post Office, six of its beautiful 12 Days of Christmas cards, by artist Catherine Rowe. The offer will end on the 31st of December 2017, is subject to availability, and limited to one set per customer.
