The Isle of Man is a small island located in the Irish Sea between the islands of Ireland and Great Britain. Inhabited by humans since 6,500 BC, the island was taken over by Gaelic cultures in the 5th century, with Edwin of Northumbria conquering the isle in 627. By the 9th century, Norsemen had established a Kingdom of the Isles, with King Magnus III of Norway ruling as King of Mann and the Isles from 1099 to 1103.
Saint Michael slaying the dragon is an iconic coin design throughout Europe and has a rich history in the Kingdom of England. The Gold Angel Noble coin was first issued in 1465 during the reign of King Edward IV and known as the Gold Angel Noble because it was considered a new issue of the previously struck noble gold coins of the kingdom.
On the obverse of each 2018 1 oz Silver Isle of Man Angel Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by Jody Clark, this right-profile portrait features the Queen as she wears the Royal Diadem crown upon her head. Engravings on this side include “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Isle of Man,” and “2018.”
The reverse side of the 2018 1 oz Silver Isle of Man Angel Coins feature the image of the archangel Saint Michael as he battles to slay a dragon. Based upon original angel coin designs, Saint Michael has appeared on British and French coins dating back to the Medieval period.
These 2018 1 oz Silver Isle of Man Angel 2-Coin Sets include individual encapsulated coins housed inside of a commemorative display box. Included in the set is a Premium Uncirculated coin with a Reverse Proof also available.
