Quote: I haven't seen this advertised or posted about anywhere except here. As word gets out about the coin I think the interest would be there.
It's a kitty cat, and stackers - well, some stackers anyway - like kitty cats.
Yes, I think we all like cats. :) I believe that the intention of the FNMT is that the first print run, of only 12000 copies, does not reach many people so that it is revalued and gives fame to the following print runs, which will be larger. I am glad to have shared this information with you while the coin has just gone on sale.
