Pobjoy Mint has issued two new coins on behalf of the Isle of Man Government, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The first coin is in the shape of a diamond gemstone and features the royal cypher, which includes St Edward's Crown. A genuine diamond has been set into each coin, with the coins available in Fine Silver 1/2 oz and Fine Gold 1/2 oz.
The second coin, which is also set with a genuine diamond, is a Fine Gold 1/10oz coin featuring an image of the queen at her coronation, with the crown jewels, including the royal sceptre and orb. Both coins utilise a double effigy produced especially for the Jubilee, featuring a portrait of the queen now and at the start of her reign.
