Description

Pobjoy Mint released six stylish coins from the Isle of Man as part of the 2008 Summer Olympics range. This collector's coin features the canoe slalom with Beijing’s Summer Palace in the background.  The canoe is a light, narrow, open boat propelled by one or more paddlers from a kneeling position, using single-bladed paddles. 

At the foreground of the six designs is an image of a rat accompanied by a Chinese script.  According to the Chinese zodiac, the Lunar Year for 2008 is the Year of the Rat.  The Rat signifies a time of hard work, activity, and renewal, but due to local Manx tradition, it is said that this animal should always be referred to as ‘A Long Tailed Fellow’.  In the surround of each coin the wording ‘Olympic – China’ appears with the denomination ‘One Crown’ illustrated in traditional Chinese style writing which represents bamboo.

The coins are available in Proof Sterling Silver and 999.9 Proof Fine Gold.  Approved by Buckingham Palace the obverse of each coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.

Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
