Issued by Australia's Perth Mint, these 1kg lunar coins celebrate the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger. The reverse design is by artist Jennifer McKenna, and features a tiger and cub. These 2022 coins are the third release in the Lunar Series III Collection.
This large coin is struck from 99.99% fine silver. It contains one kilogram (32.151 troy ounces) of the precious metal.
The Perth Mint are known for their high production quality of bullion coins. Each coin comes in a protective capsule.
The coins have an unlimited mintage. The Perth Mint will continue to produce them throughout 2022, after which they will declare the official mintage figures.
The tiger is the third animal in the Chinese lunar calendar. Tigers are regarded as being brave, forceful and powerful, and those born during the Year of the Tiger are thought to be courageous, charming and adventurous.
The Perth Mint introduced their lunar coin series in 1996. Each coin celebrates a different Chinese zodiac sign, with each cycle lasting 12 years. Since the lunar coins were introduced they have proven to be highly collectable, with most sizes selling out quickly.
The Perth Mint's third series of lunar coins began with the 2020 Year of the Mouse. The early issues are often hard to find, so if you're thinking about collecting, we suggest you buy the earlier issues before it’s too late.
The silver Year of the Tiger coins feature a special security feature - a micro-engraved letter within the design. It’s only visible under a magnifying glass and gives buyers extra security.
The obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The design shows Elizabeth from the shoulders upwards. This has been used on the Australian Lunar coins since the start of Series III in 2020. The text reads:
ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA
1KILO 9999 Ag 30 DOLLARS
The reverse design of these silver coins is by Jennifer McKenna. It shows a tiger cub and parent walking on rocks, amongst some bamboo and ferns.
The Chinese character for tiger can be found at the top of the coin, with the inscription 'TIGER 2022'. The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark appears to the left.
