Description

Since the release of the first Cat coin in 1988 which featured the Manx Cat, the yearly issue of coins from the Isle of Man has continued to be as popular as ever. 

To maintain the success of the Cat coins Pobjoy Mint has released the 2008 Burmilla Cat coin on behalf of the Isle of Man.  The design features a beautiful Burmilla Cat with her endearing kitten.

These stunning collector's coins are available in Proof Fine 999. Silver and Uncirculated Cupro Nickel. Each proof precious metal IOM coin is struck four times to attain the superlative Pobjoy proof finish with the finely sculpted relief of the cats beautifully contrasted against the mirror brilliant tables.

It was only in 1983 that the Burmilla Cat was recognised as an independent breed and was actually only bred through a chance mating between a Burmese and a Chinchilla in 1981.  The Burmilla is a gentle, intelligent and extremely affectionate cat with an exceptional temperament. The demanding and mischievous character of the Burmese mixed with the easy-going, relaxed nature of the Chinchilla, gives the Burmilla its unique personality. 

Burmillas are very extroverted, social cats that love their humans, both adults and children. They also have a very confident, playful and inquisitive nature. The Burmilla will delight humans with their antics and games and most learn to fetch quite easily. They also adjust well to other pet animals. This breed is a wonderful companion with irresistible qualities.

Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.  The IOM coin was issued in Cupro Nickel, Fine Silver, Fine Proof and Bullion quality Gold and Bullion quality Platinum.  The Cupro Nickel, Silver and 1/5oz Bullion Gold versions were also available as stunning coloured coins with the Cupro Nickel coins presented in a colourful presentation pack.
