Isle of Man Farthing, Half Penny, and Penny  1839
Isle of Man Farthing, Half Penny, and Penny 1839

The actual name of the eye-catching three-legged device is the triune or triskellion. QUOCUNQUE JECERIS STABIT means wherever you throw me, I will land, which is the motto of the small Isle of Man located between Scotland, Ireland, and England. That's Queen Victoria, of course, on the obverse ('heads') side of the coin.
