Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse bears a fine new effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD. The reverse depicts a beautiful portrait of two Somali kittens playing with string.
These beautifuly collector's coins are available in both Proof Fine Silver and Uncirculated Cupro Nickel, and each proof precious metal has been struck to the famous Pobjoy proof finish which shows the finely sculpted reliefs of the kittens beautifully contrasted against the mirror brilliant tables.
The Somali is named after the country Somalia and is an intelligent, loving and affectionate cat with extremely soft, medium to long haired fur. It is a cat with a 'wild' appearance but with a graceful body structure. The Somali's ears are large and quite pointed and they also have a long tail which is slightly shaggy. For these reasons they are often compared to a fox. It is a very intelligent cat which learns tricks quickly and easily but does not like being confined indoors.
These delightful IOM coins were issued in uncirculated cupro nickel, fine 999 silver, fine 999.9 gold and bullion quality platinum.
