On behalf of the Isle of Man Government, Pobjoy Mint has released four new crowns to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the TT race.
The first stunning proof sterling silver collector's coin in this 90th Anniversary TT series features Charlie Collier, the son of the founder of the famous Matchless Motor Cycle Co. who became the winner of the first TT race in 1907 on a single Matchless at an average speed of 38.22mph.
Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse of each unique commemorative coin bearus a fine effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann. The reverse design commemorates the skill and endurance of four of the many riders who, during these 90 years, found fame and success at the TT.
Coins in this series include:
The Tourist Trophy Motor-Cycle Race originated when the Road Traffic Act of 1903 imposed a speed limit of 20mph in England. When the Government was asked to close public roads for racing, the proposal was defeated. The Isle of Man, with its own Government and laws had no such problem and ran first the highly successful Gordon Bennett Cup car races, followed later by an event for motor-cycles.
The TT races have become the most famous motor cycle races in the world, attracting thousands of enthusiastic spectators and competitors alike. Each year many flock to this motorcycle Mecca to sample the unique atmosphere and witness the spectacle of man and machine pitting themselves against the famed mountain circuit.
This incredible coin is also available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel.
