Caturday – Special

This morning I had an idea. Following the last Caurday – Special that featured ‘cat stamps’ are their coins with cats? I already knew one country, Isle of Man, that had cat coins, but are there others?

The Manx (Tailless) cat

Kazakhstan 100 Tenge shows the Felis caracal

 

Canada 25 cents shows the Lynx

 

Canada – $300 Platinum Cougar

 

Democratic Republic of the Congo – 30 Francs

 

South Africa – 20 rand

 

Obverse – South Africa – 20 rand

 

Sierra Leone – $10 set of endangered cats

 

There are others, many others, but images are too small. I have resisted adding cats (usually lions) used in heraldry. But there is one final one…
