Token: Isle of Man Internment Camp Sixpence, Penny, and Half Penny  1940 and 1941
Token: Isle of Man Internment Camp Sixpence, Penny, and Half Penny 1940 and 1941

The Isle of Man is a good place for internment camps. There were several IOM camps during both World Wars. This one is from the Ochan Internment Camp, and the three legs (called a triskelion) on the reverse gives it sure-fire connection to the Isle of Man.

The token in our picture is from Noble Numismatics in Australia. It is a one penny token that is in superb condition. You hardly ever see them this nice. Coupled with its two partner coins, the 6 and 1/2 pennies, Noble sold them at auction for 320 AUD (about $240 US dollars) during a 2009 auction. CoinQuest thanks Noble for use of their coin photo.

Typical catalog values for a set of three tokens, run like this:

SET OF THREE TOKENS, 6d, 1d, 1/2d:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $50
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $250

Individual tokens would catalog at about one-half the prices above.
