Why add this 2016 1 oz. Silver Angel Reverse Proof from the Isle of Man to your silver collection?
This 2016 Silver Angel features the third design of the historically inspired Angel series since its re-introduction in 1984. The original Angel was an English gold coin, issued by Edward IV in 1465, based on the design of the French Angelot coin which had been issued since 1340; imagery of an archangel slaying a dragon was the inspiration for the coin's name. This 2016 Isle of Man 1 oz. Silver Angel Reverse Proof is struck from 1 full Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, measures 38.6mm in diameter, and has an established mintage limit of 100,000.
A stunning scene of an archangel's bravery adorns this coin.
The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the legend "ELIZABETH II" and "ISLE OF MAN 2016". Within an intricately engraved chain border, the reverse features a winged Archangel St. Michael, armed with traditional weaponry of spear and shield, as he battles a fire breathing dragon. "Ag. 999 1 OUNCE ANGEL" is inscribed along with the "P" privy mark from the Pobjoy Mint in London.
