The obverse traditionally features the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. Among the inscriptions, there are: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.
The reverse is a lively depiction of a Maine Coon with two Swarovski elements as its eyes. The other cat and some decorative motifs are outlined in the background. This cat was first recognized as a specific breed in Maine, hence the name and the title of the official cat of the state. Even more than for beauty, Maine Coons are noted for intelligence and kindly disposition. There’s a reason we call dogs and cats man’s best friends. The world’s most popular pet, cats are known for their affection and endearment combined with chilly independence. Cats and their humans, especially women, form strong social bonds and a mutual understanding based on affection and indulgence. Apart from being a remarkable collector’s item in a specially designed packaging, the coin will make a charming gift for all lovers of Maine Coons!
