The 2023 1/20oz Proof Gold Angel: ‘A New Era’ Coin

First issued in 1465, the gold angel is one of our most enduring and popular coins. The coin’s bold and dramatic design depicts the Archangel Michael, the Commander of Heaven’s Army, casting out Satan (represented by a fearsome dragon) from heaven. 

The coin quickly acquired the reputation as a healing ‘touch piece’ which sets it apart from every other British coin. Monarchs used them in special healing ceremonies to cure their subjects – and sufferers were personally presented with a gold angel by the monarch to wear around their necks to protect them from harm. These angel coins became treasured family possessions, passed down through the generations to bring good fortune, healing, and protection to all who carried them. 

Given the gold angel’s long and distinguished association with the monarchy for over 500 years, it is truly remarkable that 2023 marks the first time that a king’s portrait has ever appeared on this iconic coin
