Coins with cat images

Mom and Dad went to a coin show last weekend and found some cat-themed coins.

The first is a coin from Canada that has a snarling cougar.

Canada $5 Cougar

The next two are from the Isle of Man:
A Norwegian Forest Cat

And an Alley Cat

These coins are all larger (1.5 inches or 4 cm; the size of a U.S. silver dollar). Mom wishes more U.S. coins had animals instead of dead presidents. Even when there’s an animal on one of the newer quarters, it’s very small. Maybe there should be a new rule that all money must have something furry on it!

  1. WOW! Those are really cool coins!
    We live in Canada and did not know there was a coin with a cat on it!
    However, mum does not often look at specialty coins,just the ones in her purse šŸ˜‰

  2. We just had a coin show here, too, recently! The housekeeper would’ve gone if she knew kitties were waiting for her on the coins! Very cool, I must say! (Did you buy any?) And, we agree. There should be cats on coins here in the US, too. – Tom x
