Each year since 1988, collectors around the world eagerly anticipate the release of the new Cat coin from the Isle of Man. It is among the world’s most popular coins, in part because each year’s coin features a new, one-time-only design highlighting a different breed of cat.

It is now 14 years since the first Cat bullion coins were released and still this award winning series from the Isle of Man continues to delight collectors and cat lovers alike with over three million owners worldwide.

The latest Cat features the highly attractive Bengal breed with its spotted coat reflecting a wild Asian leopard ancestry, belied by an affectionate and tolerant temperament. The Bengal and its kitten are lovingly depicted on the reverse of the 2002 coin in the finest detail.

 

 

 

Pobjoy Mint was established in the middle ages in Great Britain and today makes superior coins for special commemoratives and for governments.

Pobjoy has reputation as top coin designer and coin dieing techniques and for top quality packaging.

 

The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. The Company was recently granted permission to use the family Coat of Arms in which the Medieval Popinjay is the central motif. The Popinjay was a painted wooden parrot used in archery contests in the 14th century and the name Pobjoy is derived from this. The Latin motto 'OCULO CERTO' means 'with an unerring eye' and applies equally to the ancestor's prowess as a marksman, as to the Company's reputation for the high quality and precision of its products. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. The Company is now the largest private Mint in Europe.
