  • Description:

    Although the origin of the Birman cat is unknown, the beautiful cat is also known as, " The Sacred Cat of Burma." This breed of cat is domestic and looks like a long-haired Siamese. In fact, the Birman cat was almost wiped out during WWII, leaving only 2 remaining cats left of the breed. Luckily, they were soon bred with the Siamese and like breeds to keep the pure Birman breed alive. This breed is a strong survivor and is being honored on the reverse of the Isle of Man Gold Cat 5th Ounce 1998 coin. The cat is shown on all fours, looking directly at the observer. The reverse also bears the coin's weight and legal tender value. The obverse displays Queen Elizabeth II, regally poised as her portrait is being drawn. Her face shows no sign of emotion and even exhibits a seriousness that is intimidating. Her famous tendrils allow for the weight of the heavy but eloquent crown. Encircling Her Majesty is the coin series name and the date of mintage.
