Quote from: malj1 on October 16, 2011, 01:45:33 PMPridmore just gives a brief mention that 'this token issues was raised to the status of legal tender by an act of Tynwald on the 24th June, 1679.'Maud Lister gives a much better account...I may post the entire paper on my web site tomorrow as it dates back to 1947.
Quote from: coffeetime on October 16, 2011, 11:35:59 AMThe catalogues tell me that the car on the 1997 two pound coin is a Jaguar Ferrari. I was rather alarmed when I read this, because back in the 1960s (the only time that I took any notice of cars) the Jaguar and the Ferrari were two different beasts, so I am shocked to hear that they are now cross-bred. Perhaps someone can explain how this came about?
