Description
The 26th coin from a series of the Cat.

Every year, since 1988, the Isle of Man lets out one coin devoted to cats with the image of various breeds. The unmissable Isle of Man Cat coin series continues with the launch of this beautiful crown coin depicting a Snowshoe cat and her kittens.

The Snowshoe originated in the United States of America in the 1960s, first appearing in Philadelphia when a breeder of Siamese cats noticed that a litter of kittens had unusual markings consisting of white points and feet. Intrigued by their looks, a breeding programme was begun to produce kittens with identical markings and the breeder, Hinds-Daugherty, named the breed ‘Snowshoe’ because of their unusual white feet. It wasn’t until 1974 that they were recognised as an actual breed.
Despite having existed for 45 years, the Snowshoe continues to be rare due to the difficulty of reproducing the correct coat markings. They make an ideal pet – enjoying human company, and are generally affectionate. They are known to be very intelligent and can learn to open doors and be taught tricks. Unusually for a cat, Snowshoes enjoy water and are known to swim on occasion.

The coin is round in shape with a raised rim on the obverse and the reverse. The coin’s edge is milled.

The Obverse: relief image of a portrait of Her Majesty of Queen Elizabeth II. Around inscriptions - ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN, year of issue - 2014.

The Reverse: to the center depicts an adult Snowshow cat with her two kittens.  The down value - 1 CROWN.
