The Isle of Man’s historic Cat coin is one of the world’s most famous and sought-after coins and the legendary series continues in 2016 with a new coin featuring the Havana Brown.
The phrase “Chocolate Delights” is often used to describe Havana Brown’s. These charming chocolate brown cats with the mesmerizing green eyes are alert, intelligent, and affectionate with the occasional exhibit of a mischievous personality. A breed for the true cat connoisseur as Havana’s are extremely rare and it’s estimated that there are fewer than 1,000 in the world.
Usually described as a cat of medium size and structure, firm and muscular, exhibiting a sense of power yet also elegance and gracefulness. The two most distinctive features of the breed are its colour and head shape. Its distinctive muzzle shape, coat colour, large forward-tilted ears and striking green eyes set it apart from other breeds.
Available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Fine 1oz Silver. Each precious metal coin is struck four times to create the famous Pobjoy ‘proof’ finish.
DESIGN: The design on the coin shows an image of a Havana Brown Cat with two kittens featuring their peculiar tobacco-brown fur. The obverse of each coin features the new effigy design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
