New coin is produced to celebrate Honda's milestone anniversary 27 May 2009

Alex Donwie MLC & John McGuinness

14 times TT winner John McGuinness and Alex Downie MLC, a member of Treasury with responsibility for coins, have struck the first Honda 50p coin at Pobjoy Mint in Surrey.

The coin, which features lap record holder John McGuinness, has been produced in conjunction with the Isle of Man Treasury to celebrate Honda’s 50th anniversary of World Championship Racing (1959-2009).

Mr Alex Downie MLC said:

“The coin provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the 50 years of Honda’s relationship with the Isle of Man. I have no doubt the 50p coin will be extremely popular with all the fans who have travelled to the Island, many of which will take the coin home with them as a keepsake of TT 2009.”

The coin will be in general circulation on the Island from TT fortnight.
