This Celtic Cross-shaped coin comes in its original packaging from Coin Invest Trust and will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Powerful Manannán Design
A circle at the center of the Cross shape serves to provide a traditional shape for the obverse design. At the center is Queen Elizabeth Ii wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem. The Jody Clark design shows her facing right with her shoulders open to the holder. She is encircled by four inscriptions, "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "ISLE OF MAN," "2019," and "FIVE POUNDS."
Manannán dominates the obverse. Dressed in knight's armor, he kneels on one knee holding his sword Fragarach, "the retaliator." The characteristic three-legged Manx triskelion features at the top of the sword. Above him is the inscription "MANANNÁN 1ST KING OF MANN." As on the obverse, the remaining sections of the Cross are ornamented.
