In 1997 Pobjoy Mint struck a series of coins to honour the 7 buildings of classical antiquity, otherwise known as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. 10 years later, to commemorate what makes up the modern-day Seven Wonders of the World, we launched this coin on behalf of the Isle of Man Government.

The centre of the coin is graced by The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt which is the one of the initial Ancient Wonders still standing, and maybe the best cultural task of perpetuity. What makes these coins much more striking is the layer of sand that covers the main image, which has actually been encapsulated under a thin plate of glass. This very sand was collected from the site of The Great Pyramid in Giza last September by Managing Director Taya Pobjoy. Two variations of this remarkably engineered coin are offered. The very first is a 2oz piece struck in 999. Proof Fine Silver and the second is a 1oz coin made from 999.9 Proof Fine Gold. The coin is likewise readily available in Unc. Cupro Nickel although this version does not consist of any sand. Authorised by Buckingham Palace the obverse of the IOM coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
