Year after year cat lovers and coin collectors enjoy these wonderful coins.

This award winning collection has already found a home with millions of proud owners. The obverse of the coin features the official portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the reverse design features a detailed relief of the star feline each year, including the Manx, Persian, Norwegian Forest Cat and many more!

In 1988, the Isle of Man introduced the very first Cat coin which featured the Manx Cat. The Cat is now one of the World’s most famous coins and to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this amazing series, the twenty-fifth coin will again feature the tailless Manx Cat.
