Certificate

750 years ago in 1260, Kublai Khan became the fifth Grand Khan of the magnificent Mongol Empire. A grandson of Genghis Khan, he ruled from his summer capital at Xanadu and built a powerful empire that covered one-fifth of the known world. He also became a cult hero in Europe when he welcomed Marco Polo to China. In celebration of Kublai Khan’s 750th anniversary, the Isle of Man has issued a stunning new coin. The coin is shaped like a traditional ‘Paiza’, a money-like tablet given to Kublai Khan’s patrons – including Marco Polo – that could be exchanged for goods and services. This is one of the most beautiful and unusual coins of the year

Box is engraved

BY THE STRENGTH OF ETERNAL HEAVEN,HOLY BE THE KHANS NAME.

LET HIM THAT PAYS HIM NOT REVERENCE BE KILLED

Pobjoy Mint was established in the middle ages in Great Britain and today makes superior coins for special commemoratives and for governments.

Pobjoy has reputation as top coin designer and coin dieing techniques and for top quality packaging.

 

The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. The Company was recently granted permission to use the family Coat of Arms in which the Medieval Popinjay is the central motif. The Popinjay was a painted wooden parrot used in archery contests in the 14th century and the name Pobjoy is derived from this. The Latin motto 'OCULO CERTO' means 'with an unerring eye' and applies equally to the ancestor's prowess as a marksman, as to the Company's reputation for the high quality and precision of its products. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. The Company is now the largest private Mint in Europe.
