The 2012 Our Friends Kitten series of Niue coins is genuinely eye-catching in attempts to unveil the charming mystery of the cat world. The .999 pure silver coins with the mintage quantity of 8 000 pieces each are dedicated to the lovable, charming and sweet pet animals adored by millions of people in the world. The hero of this coin is called the Bengal - a hybrid breed known for a unique wild look inherited from its ancestors, the Asian leopard cat and the domestic shorthair.
The obverse of the Niue coin bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. The inscriptions surrounding the portrait include the Queen’s name, the name of the issuing country, the face value of the silver coin and its issuing year.
The beautifully designed reverse features one of the cutest little things called the Bengal cat. The full color image is set against the silver background engraved with the outline of a cat and the inscriptions indicating the name of the coin and series. Since their appearance in 1986, the Bengal's striking beauty and charm have rapidly made it one of the most popular breeds. These cats often look like little leopards and come in spotted and marbled patterns of brown, silver, mink, sepia, blue and melanistic. The Niue coin also features a small yarn ball matched in color to the delightful display case the coin comes housed in. An awesome present that is sure to impress!
