The Manx noble is more commonly associated with the platinum version of the coin, which was one of the first bullion platinum coins to be produced. The gold version is not as common as the platinum version, and we only know of a few years when one ounce gold coins were produced. Our choice of year will be supplied and for this we offer more flexible pricing. If you would like a specific date please give us a call we usually keep a few dates in stock.
The coin was issued by the Pobjoy Mint on behalf of the Isle of Man. Baird & Co were the sole UK distributor. Denomination = Noble Diameter = 32.69mm Weight = 31.1035g Fineness = 0.9999 Gold Content = 1.0 troy ounce
The obverse shows Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadbent.
The reverse design features a viking ship. The reason behind this is that the orginal noble coins were produced back in the 14th century, under the reign of King Edward III. The design on the original coins shows King Edward III with a ship. The Pobjoy Mint chose the ship to honour the original design.
