First issued in 1996, the long-running Australian Lunar Coin Series celebrates the animals of the ancient lunar zodiac with a sequence of annual designs portraying the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This spectacular silver coin celebrates the tiger, which is said to bestow 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 parent over a rocky terrain featuring ferns and bamboo. Included on the reverse is a special 1gram pure gold privy mark inscribed with the Chinese character for ‘tiger’. Additional inscriptions comprise ‘TIGER 2022’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin comes in a classic display case with a clear lid, and an illustrated shipper. When aligned with shippers from other coins in Series III, the resulting diorama depicts all 12 animals participating in The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
