 According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived at his party. The Ox set off the night before and was first. Tiger arrived early the next morning and was second. Rat secretly climbed onto Ox and jumped down when he saw the Jade Emperor. Ox and Tiger were pushed back to second and third. Despite his protests, Tiger could only settle with being the third zodiac!

People born in the Year of the Tiger are brave, competitive, unpredictable, and confident. They are generally very charming and well-liked by others for diligence, dependability, strength, and determination.


This coin features a decorative, coloured tiger in a traditional powerful stance, softened by iridescent motifs glowing with the colourful quality of a rainbow. This is offset by a stunning mirror finish over the other half of the coin containing the words ‘Year of the Tiger’ engraved in English along with the Chinese character for tiger.


The coin is packaged in a red and gold box that is in keeping with the Lunar New Year theme. It heroes the same tiger imagery to complement the overall design. Inside an acrylic block not only protects the coin but makes it easy to display. The coin can be easily removed from this magnetised block and admired close-up.
