After more than 30 years the UK round pound was withdrawn from circulation in 2017. The Isle of Man Government however maintained their right to issue the Manx round pound by creating a brand-new design featuring the raven and falcon which was inspired by the coat of arms of the Isle of Man was granted by Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann, on 12 July 1996. In the coat of arms we can find Dexter and Sinister heraldry symbols of a peregrine falcon and a raven. These birds are symbolically associated with the Island and are Issued in Gold for the first time
