2007 saw the 100th Birthday of the famous TT Races. To celebrate this special event the Isle of Man Government have approved the release of a series of five collector's coins from Pobjoy Mint depicting some of the most iconic riders from TT history.
This incredible uncirculated cupro nickel coin in the Isle of Man TT series features Joey Dunlop MBE OBE, an incomparable 26 TT wins between 1976 and 2000 on machines from 125cc to 1000cc made Joey the undisputed King of the Mountain.
Motor racing first came to the Isle of Man when the Gordon Bennett car trials were held. In England, the Government would not allow the public roads to be closed for any type of motor racing so a proposal was put forward to the Isle of Man Government. The Manx Government agreed to the closing of the public roads for motor racing and new legislation was brought in. The 1907 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy was the first of the Isle of Man TT races which took place on 28th May and started what was to become a major annual event attended by motor cyclists from all over the world.
The obverse of each commemorative coin features a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Man by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD. Available in Cupro Nickel and Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times to attain the famous Pobjoy proof finish and features frosted high relief sculpting against mirror brilliant background.
The coins in this IOM series feature the following TT legends:
A new 50 pence piece is also being issued which features the Manxman Dave Molyneux with his motorcycle and sidecar. Molyneux is the fastest ever Sidecar driver around the TT courses.
