People in Guernsey may spot some rare 50 pence pieces on the run up to Christmas.
Twenty thousand coins with images from five popular pantomimes are to be released over the next few weeks.
Four-thousand of each design will be circulated after being delivered to high street banks in the coming weeks.
Guernsey's Treasury has authorised the coins as part of the Westminster Collection commemorative coin programme.
This is the first set of commemorative coins in Guernsey.
