The Perth Mint will release no more than 23,500 of the Australian Lunar Series III 2022 Year of the Tiger 1oz Silver Gilded Coin individually out of a maximum mintage of 25,000


The coin’s reverse portrays a representation of a tiger cub following its proud and protective parent across a rocky terrain featuring ferns and bamboo. The tigers are gilded in 24-carat gold. Included in the design is the Chinese character for ‘tiger’, the inscription ‘TIGER 2022’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.


The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid decorated with a silver geometric design. The case is packaged in a beautifully illustrated shipper portraying the story of how the tiger became the third animal of the Chinese lunar calendar and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The shippers of the coins in the Australian Lunar Series III will, when arrayed together, form a diorama depicting the ancient myth of The Great Race.

There is also a full Lunar Series III 1oz Silver 12 Coin Case available to house your  coins as you collect the entire set.
