A highlight at the World Money Fair in 2019, is this breathtaking 3oz silver coin featuring Manannán, the 1st King of Mann.
The coin, struck with smartminting technology in the shape of an ornamented celtic cross shows Manannán mac Lir “son of the sea” kneeling in knight’s armor clutching a shield and his sword Fragarach “the retaliator”. The polished Fragarach is adorned with the characteristic three-legged Manx triscelion.
Manannán derived his name from the Isle of Man and is said to be the first king and defender of the island. He is a vital part of Manx, Irish and Scottish mythology and folklore. Aside from his famous sword, Manannán is said to have possessed a cloak of invisibility and the Wave Sweeper, a ship able to cross the seas without sails.
The coin comes housed within a themed wooden case which includes the Certificate of Authenticity. Limited mintage of 999 coins!
