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 1992, the star feline was the Siamese.
Truly a Royal Animal, whose ancestors spent centuries within the confines of Thailand's temples and Royal Palaces. No commoner was allowed to own one. Just over 100 years ago, the first Siamese reached the West and captivated all with their charm and beauty. This oriental 'aristocrat' graces the reverse of the superb 1992 Cat release.
Shown on this beautiful coin is a Siamese cat sitting quietly on a dock. 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.
