This was the second issue in the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series which began in 1988. One of the most popular breeds in the world, the Persian has all the feline charm – beautiful looks, fine manners and a loving albeit selective nature. Persians come in about 50 recognized colors and patterns, dominating the show world of pedigree cats. The superstar of the cat kingdom is depicted in exquisitely sculpted relief on the highly sought after 1989 cat 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.
