2009 Isle of Man 2-oz Gold Angel vs Dragon PF69 Set
A First for a beloved series -- a special 2-coin set of Angel vs Dragon gold coins
The Gold Angel series of gold coins has had a long, 25-year history of outstanding popularity, but in 2009 a new set of coins was released that captured the world’s attention. For the first time ever, the good vs. evil design was featured on not one, but two coins! In a spectacular 25th anniversary set, Archangel Michael is depicted on one coin in a victorious stance as he drives a spear toward the dragon, but the story isn’t complete until you view the second coin, where you’ll see the continuation of Michael’s spear as it is driven into the dragon. Roiling with fury the dragon breathes a blast of fire that encircles the coin’s perimeter. Positioned side by side, it’s a breathtaking depiction of a timeless battle.
It’s also a battle that only a savvy few will get to enjoy. A mere 2000 sets of coins were minted with this distinctive imagery, and those remaining are highly coveted. But you can win the battle of Good vs. Evil for your collection by contacting GovMint.com, today!
A battle for the ages, cast in 99.99% pure gold
The Proof Gold Angel series first hit the international stage in 1984, created by Britain’s prestigious Pobjoy Mint, to instant acclaim, winning the 1984 Coin of the Year award as best gold coin. For its 25th anniversary issue, the mint presented two stunning gold coins, minted in 99.99% pure gold, each weighing 31.103 grams with a diameter of 22 mm.
- POWER, FURY, AND TIMELESS BEAUTY-- The imagery of the Archangel Michael fighting the dragon has long captured the hearts of true believers. That imagery is gorgeously captured here, as the reverse design of the first Angel vs Dragon coin in your collection shows Archangel Michael lunging to the right with a spear. Also on the reverse are the inscriptions "Au.999.9, " "1 OUNCE," the mintmark "PM," and the denomination "ANGEL." Angel coins were produced in England prior to the minting of the guinea. The reverse of the second coin in your set completes the scene of the first. It depicts a writhing dragon, facing left, as it is pierced by the Archangel Michael’s spear while a shield protects the angel from the dragon’s fire, which encircles the coin. The second coin contains the same inscriptions as the first on its reverse. The two coins have a common obverse, a bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right. Also on the reverse are the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "ISLE OF MAN" and "2009."
- GRADED PF69 BY NGC-- Beautiful, mirror-bright and intended for collectors, proof coins feature a unique sharpness of detail. They are struck on specially-made planchets with polished dies, and these gold coins are some of the best examples of the art, with a grade of PF69 accorded to these sets by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)!
- UNIQUE AND FITTING DISPLAY CASE -- With a two-coin collection, presentation is key. Your coins will arrive to you in a wooden presentation case specially designed so that one coin is never without the other, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
A gift to be treasured by gold collectors, history buffs, or those who believe in the power of Good vs. Evil, the 2009 Angel vs Dragon two-ounce coin set is only available in extremely limited quantities. Get yours today at GovMint.com!
