Gold Coast Bullion is proud to present the 1998 1oz Australian Lunar Series Tiger Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Coin from The Perth Mint.

Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back beyond 2,600 BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12-year lunar cycle. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Unknown to the ox, the mouse hitched a ride on its back, leaping to victory at the very last second. The tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig followed the quick-thinking mouse and the flabbergasted ox to dry land.

In Chinese culture, each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its ‘rule’. According to ancient Chinese mythology, beneath the calm exterior of people born in the Year of the Tiger lies the courageous and competitive personality of a natural leader. Well-liked, people with ‘tiger’ personalities are charming, affectionate and passionate. Prepared to take risks, they remain optimistic in the knowledge that they will always land on their feet. Above all, the tiger symbolises power and daring.
