English Gold Angel coins were first issued in 1465 by King Edward IV, the first Yorkist King of England. The coins were based on the design concepts of the French angelot coin bearing images of the archangel Michael. Over the course of time, the original coins had varying values from 6 shillings 8 pence to 11 shillings.
The obverse of these 2012 Gold Isle of Man Angel Coins features the Diamond Jubilee effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. It features both a modern portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in the foreground and the first portrait of her reign in the background. The Queen celebrated 50 years on the throne with her Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
On the reverse side of 2012 1 oz Gold Angel Coins is a depiction of the archangel St. Michael. In this modern version of the design, St. Michael is depicted in a right-facing stance with a shield in one hand and a long spear in the other. He uses that spear to slay a fire-breathing dragon.
