The ArchAngel, the very first government backed coin of Isle of Man
A brand new issue, the Isle of Man Angel is finally available in bullion form as a sovereign coin backed by the Isle of Man government itself.

Till today, this tradition lives on and is widely upheld by many. Engraved on the coin is Archangel Michael slaying the dragon, a bringer of illness and diseases, while using his shield to protect himself from the flames.
Brilliantly produced in a striking design, this is an extremely rare and valuable coin both for the bullion investors and collectors alike. Own a piece of the very first government backed coin by Isle of Man today!
