2022 1oz Australian Lunar Series III Year of the Tiger Gilded Silver Coin
First issued in 1995 and now in its third round, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the ancient Chinese lunar zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This 2022 proof coin features the tiger, which is said to bestow determination, courage, confidence, and charm on those born under its influence in 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, and 2022.
The coin portrays a tiger cub following its proud and protective parent across rocky terrain. Both animals are gilded in 24-carat gold. Also included in the design are representations of bamboo and ferns, the Chinese character for ‘tiger’, the inscription ‘TIGER 2022’, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, each release comes in a classic display case with a clear lid and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with shippers from the other 11 coins in the series, the resulting diorama depicts all 12 animals participating in The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
Meticulously crafted from 1oz of pure silver, this 2022 Year of the Tiger coin is beautifully enhanced with selective 24-carat gilding. The perfect acquisition or gift for anyone born under the Chinese lunar sign of the tiger.
