2017.

The Isle of Man released its first new design series since 2004, and the first to be produced by the Tower Mint instead of the Pobjoy Mint. The set includes a 5 pound coin, which the Manx authorities claim is intended to be a circulation coin, but it omits a penny and a two pence coin. The 20 pence coin has a flat reverse, but the obverse has a wide raised rim, as found on the UK 20 pence coin, and this is unique among 20 pence coins. Additionally, there is a new portrait of the Queen on the obverse; it was created by Royal Mint artist Jody Clark but is different from the portrait, also by Jody Clark, that appears on the UK's circulation coinage.

The obverse legend now reads: "QUEEN ELIZABETH II • ISLE OF MAN"; previously, it read: "ISLE OF MAN • ELIZABETH II".







5   pence coin:    Manx Shearwater in flight with elevated wings.
10 pence coin:    Manx Cat.
20 pence coin:    Viking Longship in full sail.
50 pence coin:    Head of a Manx Loaghtan sheep.
1   pound coin:    Peregrine Falcon and a Raven, the supporters assigned to the Arms of the Island.
2   pounds coin:  Tower of Refuge, with birds flying above it

All of the designs have an interlocking Celtic border around the rim.
