1985 Platinum Isle of Man Noble 1/10 Ounce Bullion Coin.
Manx Nobles come with a face value such as ONE NOBLE (and fractions of, for smaller sizes). The Noble face value is said to represent whatever the intrinsic platinum content of the coin is, that is a tenth-ounce Noble is equal to the spot price of a tenth-ounce of platinum.
These attractive coins have a mintage of 99,000, and are struck in 0.9995 fine platinum.
The Isle of Man have produced a range of platinum coins called Nobles since 1983. The range of weights start at one twentieth of an ounce, and go up to ten ounces. They are not made every year in all sizes, the last one ounce size issued was in 1997.
The obverse shows Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Elizabeth II facing to the right, with the date below:
ISLE OF MAN ELIZABETH II 1985
The reverse design features a viking ship. The reason behind this is that the orginal noble coins were produced back in the 14th century, under the reign of King Edward III. The design on the original coins shows King Edward III with a ship. The Pobjoy Mint chose the ship to honour the original design. The lettering reads:
