Dating back thousands of years, the Chinese lunar calendar features 12 auspicious animals, each said to influence the personality of those born during its ascendancy. The tiger, which oversees people born in 2022 and every 12th preceding year, is believed to bless its cohort with determination, courage, confidence and charm.
Year of the Tiger design
The coin portrays a tiger and its cub in an intricately composed landscape featuring a river flowing through a rocky terrain with bamboo, a plant symbolic of honour, virtue, and modesty. The antiqued finish adds distinctive tonal qualities to the design which also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Classic display case
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 the other shippers from the series, the illustration forms a diorama depicting all 12 animals in the order they completed The Great Race, a traditional Chinese story about the creation of the lunar calendar.
