The Lunar Series II collection from the Perth Mint was even more popular than its predecessor and continued the success the mint had in producing lunar-themed designs. Available from 2008 to 2019, the 2010 release was just the third in the collection and reflected the image of a tigers head in the design. Today, you can get the 2010 Australian Lunar Tiger 2 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
Lunar-themed coins from the Perth Mint started in 1996 with the introduction of the Lunar Series I collection. In each case, the Perth Mint has used separate designs for its gold and silver coins in any given Lunar Series. For example, this 2010 Australian Lunar Tiger Gold Coin has the head of a tiger in front-facing relief, while the 2020 Australian Lunar Tiger Silver Coins featured the entire tiger standing on all four legs in the design field.
On the obverse side of the 2010 Australian Lunar Tiger 2 oz Gold Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief in the fifth-generation Australian depiction of the monarch on coins. Created for the Royal Mint of England in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this design is the most common at the moment on British and Commonwealth design as it has been in use for two decades.
The reverse field of the 2020 Australian Lunar Tiger Gold Coin features the depiction of a tigers head. This powerful design captures the sheer size of a tiger with its imposing face staring directly at the viewer. Inscriptions indicate the Mandarin symbol for a tiger above the head and Year of the Tiger below the head.
The Lunar Series II collection from the Perth Mint ran from 2008 to 2019. The Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia. Founded in 1899, the mint was constructed as a third and final Royal Mint of England facility on the continent, but would go on to serve as a default coining center for Australia as it went through federation and eventually earned full independence. At that point, the Royal Australian Mint was built in Canberra and control of the Perth Mint passed to the state government of Western Australia.
These 2020 Australian Lunar Tiger 2 oz Gold Coins are available to you in a protective plastic flip. The 2 oz gold coin had a very low mintage of just 5,340, so there arent nearly as many of these coins as the more common 1 oz weight.
