This coin was the sixth issue of what has become the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series, first issued in 1988. Some 150 years ago, American sailors returning to the State of Maine brought home Angoras. With long legs and bodies, and a coat reminiscent of a native raccoon – it has a strange habit of grooming its long tail by spiraling it around a front leg. A popular selection for the 1993 coin. This beautiful uncirculated cat crown from the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series makes 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.
