Above photos do not do coin justice. In person, coin is bright silvery in color and highly reflective. It is a proof coin with extremely fine detail. Look carefully at photo and you will see camera lens and my fingers reflected by coin.
Front of card shows the Three Magi Riding Camels guided by the Star of Bethlehem. The Star is represented by the beautiful, unique and detailed heptagonal IOM Christmas Coin with the Steamship Travel Scene facing up on the front side of the card. The bottom of the front reads "Christmas Greetings".
The artist who designed this Christmas card considered the Three Magi Riding to Bethlehem to be the original Christmas Travel Scene.
The coin pictures another Christmas Travel Scene from the 1800's when people journeyed by steamship to visit family for Christmas. The idea behind this coin-card combination is that it was the coming of Jesus that remains the essence of the Christmas Season and motivates all our activities for this Holiday, including travel so that we can worship together with loved ones.
The left inside of the card shows the Queen Elizabeth II side of the coin.
The right inside has "Seasons Greetings" written in nine different languages. There is plenty of room inside for you to write your own Christmas message should you decide to send this as an actual Christmas card.
