Issued by the Isle of Man to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the release of the Noble in 1994. The first Nobles date back to the 14th century and the reign of King Edward III. Because the design featured him in a ship, we see that influence on the Pobjoy Mint’s rendition, where a Viking longship appears on the reverse with a special 15 privy mark is next to the sail. A likeness of Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse.
To commemorate this series of special coins, the Isle of Man Treasury has released this unique beautiful coin, struck in .999 fine Gold, with an outer ring of .999 fine Silver around the coin. The coin contains 31.1 grams of Gold and 9.39 grams of Silver. In addition to a limited mintage of only 3,000, this coin has been graded a perfect Proof 70 Ultra Cameo by NGC!
