New coins to launch next week

The Island's new set of coins will be launched next week.

From Monday the first full set of Manx coins since 2004 will be available, including a new version of the Manx five-pound coin.

The five-pound coin hasn't been widely used since the 1980s, but the Treasury is hoping this version will be well receive.

The new coins will be unveiled to the public at the Tynwald Library at noon on Monday, where special packs will be available for purchase.

The coins feature a range of designs, including a Manx cat, Viking longship and the Tower of Refuge.
