Elizabeth I Gold Angel

    (10/-). Gold plate on pewter. Bearing the figure of Saint Michael casting out the demon. As disease and illness were associated with the casting out of devils and demons, so these coins were often pierced and worn as 'touch-pieces'. Also when the monarch performed the ceremony of "the laying on of hands", an Angel coin was given to those that were touched.
