The design on the 1994 5 oz Proof Gold Angel from the Isle of Man harks back to the medieval gold coinage of Old England. The Gold Angel is minted as a bullion coin for the Isle of Man by the Pobjoy Mint, and is denominated in "angels." This 1994 proof gold coin was limited to an extremely rare 94 pieces, and contains 5 oz of .9999 pure gold.

The obverse features the Raphael Maklouf portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by her name, the name of the Isle of Man, and the date 1994.
The reverse features the image of a winged St. Michael, the archangel, armed with a spear and shield, slaying a dragon. The coat of arm of the Isle of Man, three legs joined in a pinwheel, appears above the angel. Below the scene is inscribed the weight and purity of the coin: "Au 999.9 5 Oz," and the name of the coin, "ANGEL".
