Isle of Man – Balinese Kittens – 1 Crown – 2003 – 1/5th Ounce Gold Coin – Proof — This coin was the sixteenth issue of what has become the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series, first issued in 1988. The Balinese has a reputation of being very playful with its offspring and adores human company. This cat walks with its tail held high, its graceful tail plume sways from side to side, not unlike the motion of a Balinese dancer – hence its name. This graceful cat is depicted on the reverse of the 2003 coin. This beautiful proof gold cat crown from the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series is a unique gift idea that will please the most discriminating cat lover and has become a favorite of collectors of world coins with animal themes. This legal-tender coin was struck from 1/5th ounce of .999 fine gold to Proof specifications.
