This coin was the fifth issue of what has become the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series, first issued in 1988. 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 1992 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.
