Gainesville Coins has recently acquired a 1994 Proof Gold Isle of Man 5oz Gold Angel bullion coin. According to auction results from major houses, there were only 94 of these coins minted, and it is unlisted in Krause.  The reverse of the coin shows a very muscular St. Michael the Archangel, armed with a spear and a shield bearing a cross, slaying a fire-breathing dragon. The Arms of the Isle of Man appear above Michael’s head. This coin is made from 5 oz of  99.99% pure gold by the Pobjoy Mint for the government of the Isle of Man.
