2019 Isle of Man 3 Ounce Manannan – 1st King of Mann High Relief Antique Finish .999 Silver Coin
We are pleased to introduce a breathtaking three ounce silver issue for the Isle of Man. While renditions on modern coins often lack a significant connection to the country of issue, Manannán – 1st King of Mann – is a revered figure of folklore and cultural identity.
The coin, struck with smartminting technology in the shape of an ornamented celtic cross shows Manannán mac Lir “Son of the Sea” kneeling in knight’s armor clutching a shield and his sword Fragarach “the retaliator”. The polished Fragarach is adorned with the characteristic three-legged Manx triscelion.
Manannán derived his name from the Isle of Man and is said to be the first king and defender of the island. He is a vital part of Manx, Irish and Scottish mythology and folklore. Aside from his famous sword, Manannán is said to have possessed a cloak of invisibility and the Wave Sweeper, a ship able to cross the seas without sails.
This outstanding numismatic tribute to Manannán measures 55 mm in diameter, features an antique finish and legal tender value of 5 £ (5 Pounds).
A limited and very exclusive 999 pieces of this Isle of Man issue will be produced.
