The Tonkinese, affectionately known as “Tonks”, is a relatively new breed and is the result of crossing Siamese and Burmese and said to combine the best qualities of each.  The breed are warm, loving and highly intelligent and make wonderful companions for their human owners.  The Tonkinese have an incredible memory and senses that are akin to radar.   There are five varieties of this breed with different colours and markings.  The fur is short, soft and shiny and their bodies slender with long legs.

Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Man by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.  These IOM coins were originally issued in uncirculated cupro nickel, fine 999 silver, fine 999.9 proof and bullion gold and bullion quality platinum.
