The FIRST EVER Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50p coins have just been announced and I’ve never been more excited to be able to reveal the designs to you.
Over 150 years ago the story of ‘Alice’ first came to life as author Lewis Carroll narrated his tale of nonsense to his very first listener, 10 year-old Alice Liddell, which he improvised as he went along. Alice begged him to write the tale down and the result was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In 1871, exactly 150 years ago, Carroll wrote the sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, to the delight of millions of readers and Alice fans. And to celebrate this anniversary The Isle of Man have released five brand new 50p coins.
