House of Keys Anniversary Stamp and Coin Presentation

In 2017 the Isle of Man marks the 150th anniversary of the first popular election to the House of Keys, previously a self-elected body. Tynwald wanted to take the opportunity to mark this significant anniversary in Manx political history and asked Isle of Man Treasury for a 50 pence coin to be commissioned that would be presented to all-Island school children. The coin design is taken from a famous print published in the Illustrated London News in 1867 showing the crowds waiting to hear the election results outside the Old Courthouse on Atholl Street. The 50 pence piece is a circulating coin but with a limited edition of 35,000.

The coin is presented in a commemorative presentation pack with one of the four bespoke stamps provided by Isle of Man Stamps and Coins. The first class stamp selected is one of four panoramic stamps released by Isle of Man Post Office in 2017 that illustrate the journey to popular elections in the House of Keys in the 1800s.

The above are all available to purchase from the Tynwald Gift Shop in Legislative Buildings. At this time we are unable to offer online sales, but purchases can be made over the telephone - please call for details 01624 685520.
