Isle of Man Angel
The Angel coin was first introduced into England by Edward IV in 1465 as a new issue of the Noble coin, also known as the "Angel-Noble". Patterned after the French "Angelot or Ange", which was first issued back in 1340, its name is derived from its representation of the Archangel Michael slaying a dragon.
A Piedfort (pronounced as "Pee-Ay-Fore") is an unusually thick coin, often exactly twice the normal weight and thickness of other coins of the same diameter and pattern.
