Coin Story

The Persian Cat is one of the oldest and most popular breeds of cats in the world. In Europe it appeared in the 17th century. Persian Cats enjoy being adored and, above all, they love luxury, comfort and peace. Their nature is described as a conciliatory one. However, sometimes they are criticized for laziness and excessive sluggishness. Persians love to be adored and most of all love luxury, comfort and peace of mind. They can flirt and purr for hours in the arms of the owner so as to later present ostentatiously their indifference. Legend has it that a magician conjured the Persian Cat out of a spark, the reflection of two stars and a grey puff of smoke. This legend faithfully and poetically renders both the shape and character of these amazing felines. However, the real history of the Persian Cat still remains a mystery…
