This coin is part of a coin series issued by the Isle of Man from 1988 to 2016. Each year they featured a different cat breed, and it became popular coins to collect by cat lovers around the world. The 1992 year featured the Siamese Cat.
There are lots of interesting facts about Siamese cats:
Siamese cats are very intelligent, and with very little training they love to play fetch! They are regarded as the "dogs" of the cat world.
