This coin was the eighth issue of what has become the Isle of Man Cat Coins Series, first issued in 1988. The Turkish cat is now widely bred throughout the world and includes the white, black and blue smoke Angoras. In warm weather it sheds its magnificent silky coat and takes on the appearance of a short-haired feline. The 1995 cat coin beautifully captures the fine distinctive features of the breed for all time. 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.
