Students on the Island are set to receive a specially minted coin to mark the centenary of Armistice Day at the end of the First World War.
They will each be given a distinctive 50 pence coin featuring red poppies, commissioned by the Treasury.

Each coin will be presented in its own individual display case.
The coin shows an image of the First World War soldier from the Douglas war memorial, with the words 'Their name liveth for evermore'.

The edge of the coin is decorated with red poppies, with the image of the Queen on the obverse.
