The Isle of Man Government has issued a crown every year since 1988 depicting a different cat to the delight of cat lovers and coin collectors everywhere. Voted 'Most Popular Coin of the Year' internationally, the award-winning cat has already found a home with millions proud owners. As legal tender, every coin bears on one side an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse displays a detailed relief of the star feline for that year.
In 2009, the star feline was the Chinchilla.
The Isle of Man’s legendary Cat coin turns 21… and you’re invited to the party! It’s the 21st edition since the first in 1988, and each year’s coin is unique because it features a different cat design. This year’s coin highlights a spectacular longhaired Chinchilla cat and her adorable kitten. The original Manx cat is shown in the background. All Cat coins are made for only a short time, so it is essential that you order now to keep your collection up-to-date and as thoughtful gifts for cat-lovers everywhere.
In the background are seagulls, the 'cat on a dock' emblem of the series and the ancient three-legged ('triskeles') crest of the Isle of Man (located in the Irish Sea).
The obverse of the coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
