Quote from: <k> on December 22, 2020, 11:43:42 PMMy question is, does anybody know why the two versions - with and without the triskelions - were issued in 1998? Was it an accident, or was it a ploy to sell more coins to collectors?

Quote from: <k> on December 24, 2020, 12:57:08 AMOh no! Just don't tell me that some of those ones do have only three.

Quote from: MCz on December 24, 2020, 08:28:01 AMNo, I wrote not precisely. I want to say that sometimes were 4 triskeles (like 1996/7), not only three like you wrote on first phrase of this topic: "For many years, the circulation coins of the Isle of Man featured three small triskelions on the obverse"
