  • Description:

    Beginning in 1988, the Pobjoy Mint started a silver coin series in conjunction with their famous Isle of Man Gold Cat coin series. The Pobjoy Mint has been alluring fervent coin collectors ever since with the low mintages and incredible craftsmanship that comes with these coins. The reverse design also changes annually, a different breed of cat chosen, honoring the Manx cat that originated on the Isle of Man. The Isle of Man is an island, located between Great Britain and Ireland, on the Irish Sea. Although this island is completely independent, it does rely on the power and strength of Britain in times of emergencies. The Isle of Man Silver Cat coin collection honors the history of this remarkable little island, while providing a solid silver bullion coin. The Pobjoy Mint guarantees your 1996 Burmese Cat silver coin to be .999 fine silver and is graced with the stunning proof finish that provides an undeniable gleam to the coin. Your coin is also packaged in a coin flip to protect that precious proof finish from being scratched and tarnished.

    The Burmese Cat was chosen to be the highlighted cat for 1996. Most Burmese cats are descendants of one female cat that was brought from Burma to North America in 1930 and was bred with an American Siamese cat. The Burmese originated as dark brown cats but now have a variety of colors they come in. Normally, this cat breed is dark with golden eyes and a dark, black pupil. They also have short noses, making them almost invisible on the darker cats. Along with the Burmese cat, the reverse bears the coin's weight and denomination, which is 1 crown. The obverse design is of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the coin series' name, and the coin's date of mintage. Whether you are looking to purchase silver online as an investment or a gift, the Isle of Man Silver Cat coin series is ready to be a part of your repertoire.
