Each proof precious metal coin is struck four times to attain the superlative Pobjoy proof finish with the finely sculpted relief of the Himalayan Cat beautifully contrasted against the mirror brilliant tables.

Few breeds in the history of the cat have both fired the imagination and captured the adulation of cat lovers like the Himalayan. With its striking coat pattern borrowed from the Siamese and its physical conformation matching the Persian, the Himalayan combines the best qualities of both breeds in one exemplary feline. Their nature generally is superb. Laid back and easy going like their Persian forebears, but with a little 'dash' of mischief from their Siamese ancestors.

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.  The IOM coins were originally issued in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel, fine 999 silver; fine 999.9 proof and bullion quality gold and bullion quality platinum.
