This Silver Birman Cat pendant was hand cut from a coin minted in 1998 in the country of the Isle of Man. The coin is part of a series of coins that began in 1982 and continues to this day. Every year the Isle of Man issues a new breed of Cat on their coins. The cat used on the cons in 1998 was the Birman cat. After being cut out we polish the pendant to bring out the detail and than mount the pendant on a sterling silver snake chain. The chains are available in four different lengths. The pendant measures 7/8″ in diameter so is a perfect size for a pendant.
