According the The Pobjoy Mint: In 2008 it was 25 years since the first Gold Angel coin was issued and to mark the longevity of this series Pobjoy Mint is released a new design of Archangel Michael and the Dragon on behalf of the Isle of Man government. 1984 saw the release of our very first Gold Angel coin which depicted a classical image of Saint Michael with heavily feathered wings astride the fiery Dragon. A Celtic band appeared in the surround which was broken at the top of the coin with an image of the Isle of Man Triskeles.
On the 10th anniversary in 1994, the second design was released which portrayed a more stylized image of the Archangel, with a toned and muscular torso, spearing the Dragon. The Celtic band was also removed to create a more modern design. Now, to celebrate the 25th Year of the Gold Angel a third design which combines the classical appeal of the original, with elements such as the Celtic band and feathered wings, and a more powerful image of Saint Michael slaying the Dragon. A repetition of the Triskeles symbol also appears in the center of the St. George's cross on the shield.
