Latest Coin in Isle of Man Cat Series Features Havana Brown

Meet the newest member of Pobjoy’s popular Cat Series!

By Pobjoy Mint….
The Isle of Man’s historic Cat coin is one of the world’s most famous, and the series continues in 2016 with a new coin featuring the Havana Brown.

havanbrownThe phrase “Chocolate Delight” is often used to describe the Havana Brown. These charming chocolate brown cats with their mesmerizing green eyes are alert, intelligent, and affectionate–with the occasional flash of a mischievous personality. A breed for the true cat connoisseur, Havanas are extremely rare; it’s estimated that there are fewer than 1,000 in the world.

Usually described as a firm and muscular cat of medium size and structure, the Havana exhibits a sense of power yet also elegance and grace. The two most distinctive features of the breed are its color and head shape. Its distinctive muzzle shape, coat color, large forward-tilted ears and striking green eyes set it apart from other cats.
