Despite the fact, that small island state doesn’t give the world frequent occasions to talk about, it has an interesting ancient history. Firstly been inhabited by Celtic tribes, Mann knew times of Roman, Viking and English invasions. There are numerous of their traces remain in the Manx fields, especially the stones of Celtic-Norse dwellings and castles. The island had overcome the foreign occupations and finally received the Home Rule in 1886. The international and defense policy of Mann is the matter of UK though. All the coins of Isle of Man bear the British Queen’s profile, as the other currencies of United Kingdom depending territories do. Along with picturesque circulated Manx coins which are quite rare, there are commemorative coins of Man Island dedicated to different occasions.
The Mann Isle has two official languages, which are English and Manx. The latter one has got its revival now; all native Manx speakers died before 1970’s, and the language was almost forgotten, until the enthusiasts started to teach it at Manx schools. The Isle of Man has two domestic animal landmarks, well known in the outer world. One is the famous tailless Manx cat; the other is sheep of Mann with multiple horns. The Isle of Man is a low-tax zone, which is, along with tourism, the main point of island’s income.
