Description
The 24th 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. In 2012 the coin is devoted to the Manx cat. 
The Manx cat in earlier times often spelled Manks, is a breed of domestic cat (Felis catus) originating on the Isle of Man, with a naturally occurring mutation that shortens the tail. Many Manx have a small stub of a tail, but Manx cats are best known as being entirely tailless; this is the most distinguishing characteristic of the breed, along with elongated hind legs and a rounded head. Manx cats come in all coat colours and patterns, though all-white specimens are rare, and the coat range of the original stock was more limited. 

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 double portrait of Her Majesty of Queen Elizabeth II, conjoining a contemporary and the first numismatic portrait used in 1953. Around inscriptions - ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN, year of issue - 2012.

The Reverse: to the center the relief image of the Manx Cat with kitten. On a background the monument to a cat. The down value - 1 CROWN.
