The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these coins.

A stunning coin celebrates this beautiful cat

An age-old breed from Siberia, and the national cat of Russia, the Siberian cat is recognised as having an incredibly loyal and affectionate nature. Intelligent and inquisitive, the breed is characterised by its powerful build, long hair and thick coat. Siberians were first imported into the United States in 1990, and were recognised by The International Cat Association in 1996.

These beautiful IOM coins are available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Fine 999. Silver. Each Silver coin has been struck four times to create the famous Pobjoy Proof finish, with stunning sculpted reliefs against brilliant mirror tables.

As with the other coins in this series, the Proof Sterling Silver edition is an exceptional coin perfect for any collection and each comes in a unique presentation box with certificate for safekeeping.
