The obverse of this IOM coin depicts a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.

Born in County Antrim in 1952, he started racing in 1969 and first went to the Isle of Man TT races in 1976, winning his first race in 1977.

During hsi career he went on to set a new world record of 26 TT wins, as well as winning five Formula One World Championships. In 1986 he was awarded an M.B.E. and in 1996 he was honoured with an O.B.E. for his charity work. Sadly he was killed in a racing accident on 2nd July 2000.

Motorcycle racing first came to the Isle of Man in 1907 when the first TT races were held on a shorter course than the one used today. As motobikes became bigger and faster the race then moved to the awesome mountain circuit. The spectacular TT festival increases in popularity as entries go up each year and fans continue to travel from around the world to spectate.
