Tigers are the largest living cats in the world today and though the lion is often called the King of the Jungle, the tiger is the real lord of the jungle regions of the world. Today, Provident Metals offers you the 1986 Singapore Lunar Year of the Tiger 1 oz Gold Coin (Proof-like)!
The Singapore Mint began production of its Lunar Coin Series in 1984. The Chinese Lunar Calendar runs in twelve-year cycles and names each of the twelve years after an animal. Legend has it that the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from earth. Only twelve came to bid him farewell and as a reward, he named a year after each one in the order they arrived. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying: “This is the animal that hides in your heart.” The coins were minted in pure .999 fine gold and are available in 1/20, 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and 1-ounce sizes. Mintages were very low for the Singapore Lunar Gold Coin Series.
For the obverse field of the 1986 Singapore Lunar Year of the Tiger 1 oz Gold Coins, you will be pleased to find the Singapore Coat of Arms engraved. Its iconic motto is a translation of the phrase Onward Singapore. There are an array of other inscriptions with Thai characters and Chinese characters. Inscribed on the border are the words Singapura and Singapore.
For the reverse field of the 1986 Singapore Lunar Year of the Tiger 1 oz Gold Coins, you will be excited to see the gorgeous image of the tiger. It is depicted to be a crouching tiger who looks to its side with intense focus. The strength and power of its form are detailed in the engraving. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include 1 OZ 999.9 FINE GOLD and 100 SINGOLD.
