Schoolchildren to receive commemorative coin and stamp pack

All school children on the Isle of Man will be presented with a commemorative coin and stamp pack to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first popular election of the House of Keys.

MHKs will be visiting schools over the next week to present the packs, which include a 50p piece and four bespoke stamps to mark the occasion.

The coin features a design depicting the scene of voters waiting to hear the results of the election outside the Old Courthouse in 1867.

The first public election took place between the 2nd and 5th of April 150 years ago.
