The first platinum investment coin, the one-ounce Noble from the Isle of Man, was introduced in November 1983. The Isle of Man is an ancient British protectorate, and well known for producing a variety of high-quality coins with innovative and unusual designs. From 1983 through 1989, The Pobjoy Mint of England produced The Platinum Noble in sizes ranging from 10 ounces to 1/10 ounce, with the face value shown in "Nobles," a value equal the platinum content in troy ounces. The reverse of all coins features an historic Viking longship, “Thusly,” shown under full sail. The obverse features the young Queen Elizabeth II with crown.
The last platinum legal tender coin was the platinum Ruble from Tzarist Russia in the early 1800's. The Viking-emblazoned Noble contains an ounce of fine-grade platinum, and permits the private coin collector and investor to hold onto platinum in an easily-traded form and whose value is easy to monitor.
