Silver Proof 1983 Isle of Man Christmas 50p
The IOM Christmas 50p series started in 1980 and continues to be issued to this very day. Some years are highly prised and huge premiums are being paid as popularity of these coins increases every year.
Although certificates are issued showing up to 30,000 (Cuprol nickel) or 5000 (Silver Proof) coins being released; this was not always the case. In the early years the coins were struck to demand and issue numbers are actually lower than some think.
1983 version shows the Model T Ford car at Ramsey Christmas market. Maximum issue of 5000
|Coin Weight||15.50 grams|
