2022 1oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Tiger Silver Coin

Latest Lunar release from the Royal Australian Mint

Gold Coast Bullion presents the 2022 1oz Royal Australian Mint Lunar Tiger Silver Coin from the Royal Australian Mint’s Lunar Series available for purchase online, over the phone or in-store.

The most recent addition to this collection celebrates the third animal featured in the twelve-year lunar cycle in 2022: the Year of the Tiger.

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.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1oz or 31.1g of 99.9% pure silver 
  • Effigy of Her Hajesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark
  • Limited mintage of only 50,000

This coin depicts the namesake Tiger prowling through a forest with the text “Year of the Tiger”, “虎” the character for ‘tiger’ in Hanzi, the written language of Mandarin, and the 1oz 99.9% purity silver symbol. The obverse features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark encircled by the twelve animals associated with the Chinese Lunar calendar in order of succession. Struck from 99.9% pure silver, these sovereign-backed coins would make an ideal gift for anyone born during a Year of the Tiger.
