    The Pobjoy Mint chose the Long-Haired Smoke cat as the design for the 1997 Isle of Man Gold Cat coin. Based in Surrey, England, the Pobjoy Mint is known for creating non-circulating currency, medallions, and tokens for several different countries. Its list of clients include Bolivia, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, and Spain. How's that for around the world? The Pobjoy Mint even has stamp programs for Bermuda and 5 other countries. The Isle of Man Gold Cat series is the Pobjoy Mint's first .9999 pure gold coin collection series. This series is the ideal collection for gold coin investors looking for a collectible item!

    The Long-Haired Smoke looks exactly as it sounds. Its color variations are limited to grey, black, and white making the cat look like it's covered in smoke. Its hair is long, wirey, and fluffy. The Long-Haired Smoked has an almost round face with a small, barely flat nose. Its eyes tend to be circular and a golden hue. Some of the cats' eyes might be oval-shaped. This cat's body is long but chubby. It is definitely meant to be indoors, where it can stay perched and in one place all day.

    The Long-Haired Smoke on the reverse of this gold coin is standing on all fours, with its head turned, looking out. The positioning of its tail suggests it's in a playful mood and its thick, fluffy body is also in full detail. There is a lone cat in the far distance and a single seagull right above the cat's head. The coin's weight is underneath the cat's feet. Queen Elizabeth II's side portrait is on the obverse of the coin. Written to the right-hand side of the Queen is "Isle of Man", and below is the coin's year of mintage, "1997". Each coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition and comes in a plastic flip for protection.
