COMMEMORATIVE COINS TO MARK HISLOP ANNIVERSARY

One of the greatest TT achievements of all time is being celebrated in an impressive new set of coins.

Thirty years after he broke the 120mph barrier around the world-famous course, Steve Hislop’s record-breaking Formula One triumph is remembered.

A landmark anniversary stamp and coin collectors’ pack is now on sale comprising two x £2.00 coins and a stamp commemorating ‘Hizzy’s’ blistering lap record from 1989 – the first of three TT victories the popular Scotsman enjoyed during that year’s event. This collectible coin and stamp set will be limited to just 1,000, all numbered.

The issue features photographs from the archives of “FoTTofinders” with the story of Hislop’s early TT years written by Bill Snelling. It also recalls personal tales from Hislop’s F1 victory including the lap he found his front brake was defective and had to take a corner into Kirk Michael on the pavement!

The stamp also featured in a four-stamp collection, TT Winners, which was issued by the Isle of Man Post Office in 2017.

Steve Hislop’s 120mph Lap can be ordered here.
