Isle of Man: 50 pence series Alice in Wonderland
« on: February 04, 2021, 05:37:18 PM »
The Isle of Man will soon issue a series of 10 commemorative 50p coins to commemorate Alice in Wonderland. The government justifies the release of the coins by saying that in 2010 the book was translated into Manx and a TV-film adaptation of 1998 was filmed and produced on the island.

That set is just perfect for our mad times. I look at the news each day and think, 'We are well down the rabbit hole!'.

You might have fun with these by comparing each character with a politician or celebrity. At least it would add a bit of humor to it. ;D

The first 5-coin set in this series is this weekend available for 25 pounds (free p&p) instead of 35.24 pounds here.
The decrease in price consists of a discount of 6.25 pounds and free postage which normally costs 3.99 pounds.

The second 5-coin set has yet to be issued. In total the series will consist of 10 coins.
