Isle of Man 10-PENCE (KM-new) Manx Cat
In 2017, the Isle of Man introduced a new series of their common circulating coins, most with animals!
The Manx cat -- sometimes known as Manks, Stubbin, or "rumpy" -- is a domestic cat breed that originated on the Isle of Man. They carry a natural mutation that usually results in no tail, or at most a stub of a tail. They also have longish rear legs and a roundish head. The Manx has been known since the early 19th century.
Many thanks to Maria for donating this rumpy to the Coin Zoo!
