The Exotic Cat was created in the 1950’s by crossbreeding Persian Longhair and British Shorthair cats. Exotics have a similar body to the Persian’s short, broad frame and characteristic large head.  They have a short nose which has a distinct ‘break’ in it and huge adorable round eyes.  The easy going nature of the Exotic allows it to fit into any cat lover’s home at any age as they stay playful as adults and bring pleasure for many years. All things considered, the Exotic is a wonderful addition to any family. Adorable to look at, peaceful and a loyal companion, what more could you ask for - the perfect pet. 

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.
